I'm not sure about the mapping plan (I'm not very MARC) but I think
there is user interest in this feature.

Would it be better to use Audio::TagLib for a more general
multi-format audio file tagging?  If you could leave the door open to
Image::ExifTool for many graphics formats in a similar system, that
would be absolutely fantastic!

One moon on a stick to go, please!  ;-)
