This is a bit OT, cos it is more of an ogg question than a vorbis question.. but

I was wondering why the metadata is embedded into vorbis rather than an ogg header.

Anyway, thnx if someone has an answer.

The tags are at the Vorbis layer because they describe the content Vorbis encodes, not the Ogg stream itself. They'd also not be appropriate to any/all Ogg codecs.

That doesn't mean the system isn't geenral purpose because it appears int he higher level layer; the system could be appropriated by any CODEC mapped into the Ogg framework, and for many of them it would make sense to do so.

Monty just answered this, but let me add...

There is no such thing as an Ogg header.

Ogg is the physical stream layer; only the logical
streams within (can) have headers.
