Two points:
a) Software which forces you to do something a certain way is not nice
b) Be liberal in what you accept and strict in what you output.

What would Mozilla be like if it enforced strict HTML compliance?
Not very good, but then, the real and definite solution to that would be

You have made a point there with this striking analogy. However, as far
as I know there is no program that is able to correct HTML errors in
order to make it fully comply with the W3C specs.
For music tags there is, one of those programs is called easytag. Since
this program exists, and does work well to a certain degree and/or
perspective, a workaround would not be necessary.
What perhaps could be nice is to let Muine cooperate with Easytag, so
that when needed for proper tagging, Easytag will be activated for its

I just wanted to say that besides the fact it's not easy to decide which tag is the correct one, I think that letting a music /player/ fix tags is really not a good idea, if you want it to happen without interrupting the user. I mean, I wouldn't want to import files into Muine and after a while noticed it changed my files. As far as I can think of it, music players, and Muine also, should just play the music files as good as they can, and do no writing on them. That, as you said, is left for program like EasyTag (which is a great program also) to do.
