One thing that neither of these pages mention is ID3v2, whose
in iTunes appears (from a consumer's standpoint) to contain all
for music files, and is pretty widespread. A little wikipedia reading
let me know
that there are some competing formats: APEv2 and Vorbis Comments.
One problem that creating such a microformat might solve is the idea
of an "authoritative"
media tag—i.e. a publisher could create (x)html pages that can provide
generate the official metadata for digitized music.
