Should I understand that the same approach will be applied to the padding of 
Tags and Attachments or any other element?
I am writing the code of "Apply Changes" for editing and I would want to 
have clear the things.

Then I should also understand that the padding that continues to an element 
(as segment child) should be for later use of that element and to respect 
Is it this way the thing?. Will it be respected?
Because it can happen that if somebody needs to write Tags and he finds a 
big padding in Segment, for example after SeekInfo or after Tracks, he 
writes the Tags there and annul somehow the possibility to modify the 
element that preceded it .

Regards. Santiago
