I believe what Silvia tried to tell you, is that it would probably be
a better idea if you analized the existing solutions (which are not
JUST Vorbis Comments, as you stated) and tried to integrate your
ideas, instead of starting a complete new project.

Build upon on existing work is usually a better solution to create a
better product.  That's what Free Software is all (mostly) about.

I'd suggest you to go over Skeleton and see what is lacking there and
how your ideas may integrate there.  If you cannot succeed in making
Skeleton a better format for Metadata using your own project, then
perhaps it may be the time to create a separate standard.  Although,
keep in mind that more standards means more confusion, less support,
more headaches to developers and users alike, less success.
