I completely agree, since there are more problems like this I pointed
out before I think now would still be a good time to make some changes.
Especially because the current specs aren't final anyway. Eventhough
some application already support the current tag set I think this is
still relatively small amount, too small to cause major problems.
If we change the current specs we could always notify the authors of
some known application which implement the Matroska tag specs already
I was already working on a list of problems we have at the moment if it
comes to tag names. I'll start adding some problematic tag names like
this as well. I'll put it online asap.
