All the id3v2 frames beginning with WWW are url frames.
It even shows the details via that link you provided:

eg. WWWARTIST = WOAR = WM/AuthorURL = Official artist website url

Those are used by WMP (hence the "WM/" part). We don't use them at all, but we don't delete them if they exist.

thats good to know. but what about other non-TXXX frames that may exist?

like for instance, soundcheck values? or WMP volume leveling values?
We don't delete any existing COMM frames.
So hopefully we don't delete any existing iTunNORM frame (if it is a COMM frame, as specified in that HA thread).
If we are deleting the iTunNORM frame, then let me know, and I'll add it to our id3v2 specs to make sure it's not deleted.
The same goes for any others. Let me know, and I'll add them.

well, i'm happy to help, and we don't have to do it from scratch:
As from Winamp 5.63 onwards, we won't be deleting any of the id3v2 frames referenced in that table :-)
