Shouldn't metadata contain tags? How do I know whether a metadata entry
should be user-visible (because it's a tag) or not (because it's file
specific data).

Is this information needed for correct playback (i.e. does a video
player need it)? If yes, shouldn't it be part of the AVCodecContext? If
no, why export it?
