I'd like to have docs for them, even if it's just "title of the stream",
just because there are less obvious ones and you might want to add
clarification for some tags (like what the difference between artist,
composer, producer and lyricist is - or the difference between nominal,
minimum, maximum and average bitrate). It'd probably also be useful to
document the type of the tag (the date tag being a uint describing
the julian day for example isn't obvious).

For a start I'd just extract the simple descriptions from the
gst_tag_register's in gsttag.c.
