Do you think the noise in your 16bit application will sound different
between a conversion from a 96bit or 80bit audio file from the same
analog source ? If the argument for keeping these fields freeform is to
support 96bit audio, I'd say Erik is right that you shouldn't pick
freeform fields.

As a practical matter, I don't see a direct use case for a
file/interchange format with a 540 dB dynamical range.
