It seems like a wrong solution. What if Ogg is sent over HTTP? Or MP4? Law?

Tags in the protocol stream (e.g. HTTP) instead of "muxing format"
(avi, mp3, ..) should be implemented as such. E.g. you could consider
adding a "icy demuxer" or so, or expanding the URLContext to somehow
contain a metadata struct itself (the new metadata system should allow
this), so that the AVFormatContext can then copy it if wanted (I like
this version).
