I mean that the format should be capable of describing who acted, directed, 
and did other parts in movies as well. Take a short commercial for example: 
Who are we seeing in this short clip? What are they saying and in what 
language? Who produced and published the clip and when? + distribution 
rights/license stuff, and other things as well.

There are drafts for including still images in Ogg streams? Surely they 
would have to be described as well. What camera was used and who made it? 
Who owns it? What do we see on this image?
