What? Breaks the standard? I don't agree with you. There is nothing stated
in ID3v2 specification that tag may contain other frames. There is only
allowance in custom frames (X,Y,Z), but nothing stated that my application
should handle frames like "HAHA" or "TOOT".

I think that the only problem is that the previous specifications of ID3v2
don't include a statement that frames with an unrecognised Frame ID should
ignored and skipped using the Size field.
