Vorbis comments are not intended to be used to store every bit of metadata
about a song. We need some sort of XML schema for that sort of thing so we
could say something like:
<instrument>Irish War Drum</instrument>

I don't think there's any particular reason why you couldn't, assuming the
lyrics tag fits inside the (ample) space limitation. This could be a library
bug, or a problem with vorbiscomment.

The day I can store the liner notes for 'Oil and Gold' by Shriekback,
phonetic alphabet, typesetting and all, will be a great day indeed :-)
