Ah, interesting.  They've apparently updated the recommendation on that -- it used to be that they specifically said that binary data *should not* be included in Xiph comments (and even specifically mentioned cover art).  Looking at that spec, it's actually quite a u-turn since 

In that case the answer is that there's no easy way to set those fields without doing all of the [en/de]coding of the cover art fields yourself, but it'd probably make sense to add a convenience method to the XiphComment class to handle such.
