if identifier list and custom tag list are shown together.

This, this this.  Having the identifier list in a completely separate window from the custom tag list makes it extra confusing.  Custom tags and the identifier list should be together, virtual tags can be separate (although yes, both should have a way to assign the field type paired with them.

What if the tag definition list looked like this?

Display Name (replaces/merges with Identifier) | ID3 | Vorbis | etc | Assign to custom tag (drop down list containing custom tag slots not currently assigned)

I haven't worked out the question of how to do deal with the pre-existing list of things that can be turned into custom tags, but I feel like there is a workable solution.

I dont plan to change the custom tag count

During the 11 months since this was posted, there has been two prominent users expand on the MusicBrainz Picard q & a (read=guide) with its vast array of specialist fields, and zkhcohen has a plugin in the beta stage that writes seven EBUR 128 values to custom tags.

I thought it might be time to give this topic another kick in the butt  ;)

What if, rather than a Tags (3), Custom tags were simply given their own tab.  And there could be another tab for virtual tags, instead of hiding them deep in preferences?  It could even include configuring the field type, etc.

And, if this wish is going to trigger some work on the settings panel(s), let me stack another wish on top:

A keyboard shortcut option to access the custom/virtual tag settings panel directly.
(my mouse and my fingers would be very grateful)
