Hello Bernd,

The main reason is that so far there is not music player application
which cared about having this information. :-)

Sounds fine for me to add this as a new field for players which do
something special with Podcasts (i. e. not just treating them like any
other piece of music). Having more information about a player can
never hurt, as long as music players do a sensible fallback (i. e. to
AudioFolders) if it's not there.
