I updated the page with constructive proposals and structure.

See the new RIGHTS field name; dropping LICENSE and COPYRIGHT) for instance.

By the way, here is a proposal I did not add on the page. I would like to 
discuss it here first. What's up with the naming for these formats 
anyways!? Vorbis is a codec. FLAC is a codec. Both used Vorbis comments. Is 
that not a little confusing? One could assume Vorbis comments were 
something related to the Vorbis codec only. It should be called.... Media 
Comments. Or something. (Again, I am just as terrible with naming.)

(See. I am not all ‘let's kill Vorbis comments and make something new and 
shiny!’ Well, maybe I am.)
