Are these tags, you created or took from other specs ?
Also another note... It seems that lot of IDs are invalid !!!
Some (the chapterUID and trackUID) uses the same value as in the other
parts of the file (duplicate = bad). Others just don't follow the EBML
rules ([XX] is supposed to be [XX][XX][XX] for example).

I added a new Targets system which is more logical and put everything in

Now with the Genres list, there can be a list of Audio genres, so it's
not needed anymore (removed).

If you mean the PCM-to-AAC encoder, then it should be put in the Track
directly and not editable neither.
