I've had a closer look at the tags-specification, and it appears that there 
are no formal tags for attaching CD-covers, booklets, lyrics etc., only the 
generic attachment-type.

Wouldn't it be an idea to decide upon a standard set of tags for this 
information?

Example:
CD-cover (front cover implied): 
IMAGE_COVER (can be used for movies as well)

CD-back: 
IMAGE_COVER_BACK (also good for movies)

CD-booklet: 
This might be several pages or none. As such, it might be better suited for a 
chapter definition, for instance SCANNED_PAGES, with tags such as PAGE_1, 
PAGE_2, etc.

CD-lyrics:
This should be plain text, and could alse be used for transcripts of movies, 
audio of interviews, theatrical performances etc.
It might fit in per-track as well as per-chapter. Any suggestions for a 
tag-name besides LYRICS?


On another note, returning to the indices for a CD, on some CDs they are 
named. How should this naming be implemented?
