With a little evangelization I think we can get some attention and some 
forward movement.  However, Brian is absolutely right that it's going to 
take a long time to show up in the marketplace.  The vendors require a 
consumer driven reason to make a change. That driver might be podcasts 
with CTOC/CHAP frames.

A full working reference model would be the ideal thing to have. Anyone 
want to put all the pieces together?

  MP3 file w/2.4.0 tags w/CHAP & CTOC frames
  library + sample code that wrote the above v2.4.0 tags
  player that can read and use these tags

Other thoughts:

a.  Let's revive the v2.4.0 specification and all the issues that people
     have with it and get it fixed.  I'm willing to serve as typist.

b.  Which library out there do people feel is the *best* example of
     an ID3 tag editor that supports v1, v2.3 and v2.4 tags correctly?
