Most player programs only use a very small subset of the frames. That 
would not change if more frame types were available.
You can add user defined text frames or comment frames to put you own 
particular data in, but most player software will not do anything with them.
You can try my program jampal (http://jampal.sf.net). It can add frames 
of most types to songs. You can create any number of user defined text 
frames. You can customize the library display to include your user 
defined frames, then you can sort on these frames, search on them, 
create playlists based on them, etc. Jampal can play your songs as well.
