The thing that was discussed about this earlier was how much information do we
want define to store in the tags?  Do we want to just store the basic
information that most people would use when searching for the movie, or do we
want to define how to store 99% of the possible information?

Look here:

To quote Steve,
" Do we really want a whole database inside a Matroska file ? What about
pictures of the actors or some of the scenes in the movie ? I'm sure you can
find all this in an interactive website but it's probably useless to be embedded
in the file."
