Hi All,

Another question would be the DB identifiers.

Since they're attributes to EXTERNAL_DB, is anyone bothered about the
name for the databases? So far I have come up with:

IMDB - http://imdb.com
TVDB - http://thetvdb.com
TMDB - http://themoviedb.org
IBBC - http://www.bbc.co.uk

AMZN - http://amazon.{com,co.uk,fr,...}
MBRZ - http://musicbrainz.org
DSCG - http://discogs.com

Perhaps 4 letters are too few? Perhaps any length would be appropriate
or a top-level URL would be more desired instead of a (4 letter)
identifier. On the other hand, FOURCC is an established (not
necessarily good) practice.

Any comments?
