Metadata are in the authority of the source client. The interface you
point to is *only* for legacy formats that do not support metadata
themself (namely: MP3, and AAC).

As Ogg/Opus, and Matroska/Opus both support metadata there is no need
for workarounds. (Same for native FLAC, Ogg/FLAC, and Matroska/FLAC.)
