converting FLAC to MP3 with "all" the tags, currently looking for TDRL and UFID

I'm mostly using Picard and MP3Tag for my tagging needs, then using FB2K to handle the FLAC to MP3 conversion.

(apologies if such a question should be in FLAC, I'm guessing here)

I want to automate the conversion of my VorbisComment tag RELEASETIME to ID3's TDRL, and MUSICBRAINZ_TRACKID to ID3's UFID:http://musicbrainz.org.

If this isn't possible with FB2K, then I guess I'm looking for a different free tool (in either/both senses) for handling such conversion, carrying over as many as possible of the tags over - coverart, maybe even lyrics would be nice but not that important at this point.

I'm noticing that I have to change quite a few of MP3Tag's default mappings in order to get the ID3 tags converted properly (e.g. CONTENT GROUP rather than CONTENTGROUP, COMPILATION, TORY, all the SORT ones. . .)

And ideally not just the one-time tag transfer when encoding, but even updating the ID3 tags when the source FLAC fields are edited later on, but I realize that's most likely a bit of a pipe dream.

I don't think there's a way to do the conversion and tagging in a single step.

My experience with foobar has been that it copies over all the tags during conversion, does it not do this? I mostly stick to the default tag fields (Artist, Album, Date, etc.) so it may be that I just haven't noticed.
