It would be nice to have the following MusicBrainz related tags
available predefined as custom tags (this is how picard tags them)

TXX/MusicBrainz Release Group Id
TXX/MusicBrainz Album Id
TXX/MusicBrainz Album Artist Id
TXX/MusicBrainz Artist Id
TXX/MusicBrainz Release Track Id
TXX/MusicBrainz Disc Id
TXX/MusicBrainz Work Id

They could nicely be used as web links in the "Now Playing -
Details"-panel to quickly navigate to corresponding MusicBrainz web
pages when a song is selected

I'm already running out of the 16 custom tags limit.

I couldn't have formulated it better .. can't believe it's almost 10 years since my first request ... now I'm almost retired 😀

Might be a little biased though, I use ScrobblerBrainz which has MBID submission with an external library. :P
