I placed this at https://ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/ticket/1158.

I see some of the bext tags are mapped to flac tags which is great, but is not entirely what --keep-foreign-metadata does in the flac utility. For instance, this sample http://www.gallery.co.uk/ixml/examples/usesEntireiXMLSpec.WAV has an iXML chunk. With "flac --keep-foreign-metadata usesEntireiXMLSpec.WAV" the output would contain a copy of the iXML chunk.
