On mpd, multiple genre tags are separated properly.
For example, aaa.mp3 has the following tags.
mpd would show aaa.mp3 in both rock and ballad genres in mpd clients.

Our MPD frontend uses concat_multi_values to produce a single line from our lists which I assume mimics mpd's behaviour (at some point in time but maybe no longer). However, in our Track model, genre is not a list it's a single string - as you said. And we specifically convert it from the list GStreamer gave us to that delimited string here.
So fixing this will require a change to our
For genre, yes, it makes sense. For title we are probably OK as we are. Personally I don't think there's an obvious reason to support multiple separate titles so why introduce that confusion to every client? And the others are really just hacked into the comment because we have no motivation to expose them.
