I'm no tech geek or developper however I understand, that the 
possibility exists for "developpers" to insert it? It sounds 
complex... and not for the average user.

I also understand, that this would imply eventual abuse issues 

Correct me if I'm wrong but if we take MP3 for example, everyone, 
with no speciall skills, can do insert/edit/submit/query tags 
through every average player (and/or other additional specific 
programs available) to get these similar details. 

There's the CDDB database, in which case I understand that there 
isn't still something similar concerning Movies, I guess IMDB 
wouldn't do since it's not very accurate, but while I think of it, 
there is some level of inaccuracy at CDDB too, the fact is that 
actually anyone can submit anything. 
But no one is obliged to use it, anyone can insert any text, 
lyrics, cd cover images (or other), set the language, links, etc.

And comments... whatever they are, abusive or not, it's inavoidable.
That's why I said that once you upload the file, you get a preview 
and correct whatever is to be corrected. Actually, it would be much 
wiser,  before you upload, to get this preview at your local PC, 
while creating the torrent!
Already when people upload and have a box to enter comments, they can 
be abusive as well, moderation comes after it's uploaded (and not 
always). So what's the difference?
The difference is to make it easier, to do it at once, in one step, 
while creating the torrent.
Maybe the option would be to automatically extract ALL the 
information exclusively from the movie file (and not from any place 
else) while creating the torrent? In which case all the information 
should be available inside the comments and extra tags to be made 
available for this purpose (I'm already so unsatisfied with the so 
limited options in the movie properties tab in WinXP!) but 
then,wouldn't it increase the movie file and perhaps create other 
problematic issues?

I hope this is not sounding too off-topic, after all the main issue 
here remais how to get such extra options for torrent files :-)
