David,

I'm sorry. I didn't mean you individually. That was unquestionably
sloppy of me and I humbly apologize.

I'm referring to the things I noted, ID3 tagging, DVD Chapters, ...
Those, I contend, are sloppy. They don't help properly tag a symphony or
a theatrical play.

So, now that I've apologized, can I get you to respond substantively?
