Multi genre tags support

Hello,
I've a request on multi genre tags support.
For id3v2.4 for mp3 and vorbis comment for ogg/flac files allows and encourage multi tags.
As an example here is a quotation from vorbis comment header specification :
Field names are not required to be unique (occur once) within a comment header. As an example, assume a track was recorded by three well know artists; the following is permissible, and encouraged:

ARTIST=Dizzy Gillespie
ARTIST=Sonny Rollins
ARTIST=Sonny Stitt

So, following this tagging rules, the files could have several genre tags, for example
Code: Select all
GENRE=Electronic
GENRE=House
GENRE=Deep House

As far as I know, only a few players support multi genre tags. So to circumvent this issues, users tag with only one genre tag with all genres separated with a separator, for example
Code: Select all
GENRE=Electronic, House, Deep House

In Madsonic,and client apps, the mixing of genre is not supported, so for example, if a song A is tagged
Code: Select all
GENRE=Electronic
and an other song B is tagged
Code: Select all
GENRE=Electronic, Deep House

it will results in two genre "Electronic" and "Electronic, Deep House". Song B will NOT be available under tag "Electronic" alone. So if I start a playlist under "Electronic" tag I will never have Song B available...
However, the logic would like two separate genres in this case : Electronic and Deep House. I could find Song A and B under "Electronic" and Song B under "Deep House".
That's the philosophy behind multi genre tags support and it would be great if it was implmented in Madsonic.. :)

So far, my multi genre flac files are tagged as :
Code: Select all
Electro / Deep House

in one tag with a slash / separator.

I've observed that server 6.0 chops the tags after slash so it will be tagged
Code: Select all
 Electro


How do you tag currently your multi genre songs ?

OPlayer HD could be improved to support tags in srt files. These tags are very common at subtitles.
Sample:
<i>This is a test of italic.</i> results in This is a test of italic.
<b>This is a test of bold.</b> results in This is a test of bold.
