I think a couple of the earliest tag-based implementations did use 83dB. I think one stubbornly does to this day (despite a request for them to change very early on).
The very first apply-the-gain implementation (mp3gain) defaulted to 89dB early on.
I don't think there is any sense in clinging to the idea that the original archived proposal is definitive, or version 1. It wasn't finished. See the ReplayGain threads from 2002 to see how much work was done afterwards.
It might make sense for someone to create a new document or website to reflect what is in use today.
I'm happy for someone to pop a note on the original proposal to say it's an archived website

Well, maybe somebody can do that.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE04KNFieRgI learned a lot through doing ReplayGain. I've since sat on real standards bodies and been involved with real IPR. Nothing exciting, but still... there is a difference between something that's published by the IEC, and something that someone decides to post on the internet. De Facto standards end up being more important than what's written in the latter case.Cheers,David.
... can MP3 Gain(Level Track Volume in MM) be done more than once to a track or is it better to go to a different db level from the original untouched tracks?
