I see a use case for Baloo for finding music files, but probably not for
ratings & tags. While Tags (if done correctly, for music files this also
includes Ratings [0]) could be read by Baloo via the TaglibExtractor of
KFileMetadata, I heard that those attributes can't be written back to
Tags by Baloo.

So what would be the Use Case for write Tags to extended File attributes
via Baloo instead of correctly writing them via taglib?
