not if you care about being able to use your files on a broad array of products and software with no effort on your part. and id3 is a legacy standard that has limitations, and like any of these choices has its own set of pros and cons, as the genre issues between v1 and v2 demonstrate.

the whole reason I am converting from FLAC to m4a (alac) is to increase their universal usability, which to me, is the most important aspect of a filetype format.

as to the id3 in a FLAC issue, it could happen to any format. software that allows id3 to be hacked into a FLAC, (which unfortunately EAC can do), is just behaving badly, its a hack. to be clear, I think that mp3tag can show id3v2 in a flac, but not v1, or maybe vice versa... I forget. I have been able to avoid the issue altogether by being aware of it.
