I disagree, and don't want to see this form of overloading. I'll go
into more detail if needed.
Suggested tags are just that; suggested tags so that most people can
agree on what to use. I had envisioned neither complicated mechanical
rule mongering in the player, nor a tags display hardwired to only a
small set of 'approved' tags (that are expected to be there).
I'll get to this in more detail in a bit. For now, I have my own
troubles in libvorbis ;-)
