What I want is some defined behaviour so that when someone comes up and
asks why something doesn't work I know why.
I'm not against adding that, I'm against not defining it.
If we define that streaminfo is extracted from the stream and not via
metadata and that length is streaminfo, I will make id3tag never set the
length tag. If we agree that streaminfo and metadata are just some
categories to make it easier for app writers to categorise the tags and
elements shouldn't care about it, then i'll just set length from id3tag.
The only thing that I don't want is "Let's just add something and see what
it means later".

And I've read an explanation of why it was taken out.
