Oh, and I forgot to mention.  Windows Media Player did use the POPM frame prior to version 10.  Sure makes you wonder about the originality of their idea in the patent.

Why isn't there a "rating" tag under ID3v2?  IE 0-5 stars as with many of the players.  Sure its implemented in Itunes and their ipod, but what happens if someone wants to use a different device?  Also moving the music library is a pain because the ratings don't move with the files.   The ratings is how I create many lists, as well as mark songs for deletion later (1 star).  I think this would be well worth 3 bits in the header.
