Well heck. I promise I *did* search the Wiki previously, but somehow, I 
didn't turn that page up. I must have been in too much of a hurry and 
made my search terms too narrow (e.g., I know I searched for things like 
"mp3" and "playlist").

Title, author, director, ISBN/ASIN, publisher, genre, rating, length, 
pages, release date, etc. Note that I'm thinking in more general terms 
about media, not only of electronic media, as the media-metadata page is 
oriented at this time.
