Note that it was a misunderstanding by myself as to what the RDF file
was supposed to contain. I understood it to be a definition format for
the metadata possible and defined to be able to appear inside an Ogg
file. However, it was just supposed to be an example describing what
was actually found inside the example files. I was missing that bit.
