interesingly enough, i did completely forget the key/value extra data thing 
after proposing it for the mediaplyer control, lol
but yes, it looks as a good solution for me, also because being some extra 
"metadata" should be clear that the applications (and visualization) must not 
rely on that pair being available and that can change in the future.

it's a +1 from me
