So vendor isn't just a tag in the tag section? Would it break anything
to add the "encoding" information to the ogg header in the same way the
vendor tag is?
Awaiting your answer before removing the "ENCODING" tag from the
Wait. Wasn't the "header format" already standardized, and thus
inviolate? So we can't add in "encoding" at this point... so we need to
say "its a tag in the comment section"?
