I think what he tried to say is:
It may or may not work. There is no official support. If it works for
you: fine. If it doesn't or break: no official support ('also fine').

regarding meta data:
It's *exactly* the same as for MP3 streams. There is no technical
difference between them.

Maybe that helped you.
Have a nice day!
