This would help in many ways:

a) you could search for duplicated tracks (by Track ID)
b) you could search for tracks belonging to the same album (by AlbumID)
c) you could search for correctly spelled artist, albums, tracks (using the IDs and a call to the XML Webservice of MusicBrainz)
d) tags written in any other program could be matched to such custom fields in MediaMonkey without additional scripts and sometimes additional tables in the database.
If we could WRITE such custom tags back to the tracks, we could edit them inside MediaMonkey - actually, we have to do this with an external tagging program (like Mp3tag) capable to do this task.
What do you think, will v4.1 bring us more flexibility in this part of managing tracks?
Could someone tell me, if the custom fields (read/write) are already officially tracked and maybe already on the ToDo list?
