I put it in quotes for a reason. :)  I'm hesitant to call it another 
metadata format, because it's little more than vorbis comments extended 
to apply a tag to an entire release or a selection of tracks.  It's all 
distilled down to ordinary vorbis comments in the end.  It's really not 
an alternative to vorbis comments or your proposal.  If anyone is 
interested, I'd be happy to discuss it, but I was merely trying to 
illustrate my point re: storing metadata separately from the audio files.
