My previous posts may have been slightly misleading.  I don't think this
COMPOSER/ARTIST/PERFORMER problem should be solved with XML.  Whatever format
is decided for these values, they belong in the Vorbis comments header, which
means _no XML_.

Given that, I don't think there is anyone arguing for solving this problem
with XML, so we can drop that particular issue from this discussion.  The XML
metadata idea is targetted to solve a different problem.
