ID3v2 extended tags (or custom metadata)

I am working on creating a radio station. I have it running correctly, and I'm going to be interacting with it on a website and in an iOS app I'm making, but I'm needing my own custom metadata attached to the songs played. Using MP3Tag, I can add extra tags to the songs, but Winamp and the Shoutcast server do not see them, and they're missing from the "currentmetadata?sid=1" on the server when playing. So I want to know, is it possible to get these extended tags to be sent with the normal metadata when a new song is played and retrieve them in either XML or JSON format?

E.G. I can see Title, Artist, Album, Year, etc. And I want to add "Custom1" and have it retrievable.

That link mentions the supported metadata being what is here: http://wiki.winamp.com/wiki/SHOUTcas..._Specification.

So that means everything listed there is able to be transmitted, I assume. One of them is a "comment" tag (COMM) which it says could have multiple present. So could I, say, have a comment tag that I give an ID to (it has an id field) and label it "Custom 1" and have another comment tag labeled "custom 2," could I still get these individually?
