A suggestion I made before, and as far as I know was being generally 
accepted, was that we should introduce a "ORIGINAL" sublevel to be able 
to nest every available tag. This way all ORIGINAL_X tags can be left 
out of the Matroska tag set and it allows you to specify every bit of 
original info.
The only thing is that it hasn't been completely work out yet but as far 
as I can see it won't cause any problems in the current tag system. I'm 
I wrong about this?
