You may also have a look at the tags of the RIFF Broadcast (using WAV) info.
Dunno if it's the same as Extended RIFF Info

Whats is the difference ?

> Involved people list

Is that necessary ?
Is this Track dependant BTW (all these tags) ? Because a person who worked made
the music of the video is not the same author as the one of the video.

Difference ?

> Original filename

That's not part of this meta data, it's elsewhere in matroska.

> Original lyricist(s)/text writer(s)
> Original artist(s)/performer(s)

> Lead performer(s)/Soloist(s)
> Band/orchestra/accompaniment
> Conductor/performer refinement

Colour of the shirt ? Temparature of the room ?

> Software/Hardware and settings used for encoding

The format to define the encoding paramaters is not portable on any OS. I don't
think we need that tag. This is the kind of tag only usefull for 1 application
understanding it. It doesn't need to be in the global format.

> Record Location

In a room ??? Are you trying to put a whole database in one file ?

What is that ?

> Cinematographer

Difference with the Director ?

What is that ?
