Hi Roger, hi all: 

        * "_passing metadata in a stream so that a HTML webplayer can show
artist and title_" can be accomplished extracting the ID3 tags from the
file and presenting them as JSON values, for example 

        * Sound.load(new URLRequest("07 - audio.mp3"));
        * Some old tricks on the issue were done in the past. here the link of
an ECMAScript derivative from the past, if it serves you as a model ID3
tags Get/Receive [6].

But, please take in consideration: 

        * Not all webplayers stream music by obligation. Not all webplayers
are designed to play music.

        * Sounds: Rings and bleeps of a mobile device or a computer device.
Audio meta tags should be applicable to the webplayer ( one file vs.
multiple files ).
        *  Streaming on the web: As I noticed to this group in my last email,
in our present days there is a growing demand for streaming by
scientific communities to publish audio conferences or talks.

        * Concerning to my references WIPO et al, yes I agree , technology
should be considered neutral.

        * The only important issue to consider would be the five seconds
minimum lenght.
