It matters to other software that attempts to be compatible with
iTunes.  My feed parser parses keywords from a variety of sources,
including itunes:keywords, and exposes them into an array.  So
delimiters matter.

Anyway, thanks for these clarifications.  But I can't help but point
out that this is why people appreciate good specifications.
Interoperability is a spectrum.  On one end, there's "I don't know on
the other end, there's "I don't know, let's go ask Pete."

Any word on when we might see a spec for apple-wallpapers (used in
iPhoto's photocasting feeds)?
