Yes. I know of only three uses of extensions to the standard
set of vorbiscomments in the wild:
1. Rhythmbox makes use of the DISCNUMBER field. It cannot be
set by the user (must use another program to set the info).
2. REPLAYGAIN is understood by a few players (can't remember if
Winamp or Directshow filters will do it). Command line tool
or foobar2000 to set them.
3. Musicbrainz tags. Only Musicbrainz software seems to interact
with these (it will of course add year, title etc. too).
On the other hand not even all of the standard set is commonly
used (ISRC, organization).
