Very complete survey of current problems affecting the music metadata eco-system with an attempt at finding the silver bullet which could solve the issue. Several aspects of your proposition have already been expressed or are being worked on, but are not cited in the article. For example, the concept of MVD is the same as what the book industry calls “Core metadata” and to what I refer in my own studies. I salute the fact Metadata and Fair Trade Music are being presented as interlaced. Lots of food for thought which should be channeled appropriately.
