I've tried files tagged with Chapter Frames carried in version 2.3 tags with a number of media players running on Windows. 

The following played the files without problems and could decode the standard tags:

However, although Windows Media Player 6.4 played the file it appeared unable to read any information from the tag when the Chapter Frames were present.

It looks like a new version of the standard would probably be the safest option but I'm concerned this might discourage support for Chapter Frames.
