As this would be XML, I assumed it would be in
a separate Ogg stream as per the "Metadata"
proposal at:

I also puzzle why you want to include in it a
top-level description of the Ogg streams
present in the container.  I had thought that
was what Ogg Skeleton was for.  I can see the
point of including Artist, Rights, etc.

I will crawl back into my hole now.
