Maybe the big chance for MusicBrainz?

I doubt it. I've had several heated discussions between the stuck-up snobs that write the naming wiki for MB. They claim that MB isn't going to adapt to be used as a tagging service.

Yes, the styleguides are quite strict regarding naming, but, this is for a reason, namely consistancy in the way data is stored.

Which is all fine and dandy, but last I checked, MB is being used by Last.fm so tracks with botched ID3 tags are sent properly.

With the freedb project out of service for the time being, the people that run MusicBrainz need to sit down and decide if it's going be used as a public tagging service, or not.

Huh? So what's MusicBrainz then?

Did anyone end up making a MusicBrainz tagging pluging for fb2k?  I remember talk of it, but not sure anything materialized...

Too slow! 

BTW, I'm not sure what MusicBrainz is useful for if not tagging.
