Lightbulb Adding Song Ratings to a modern skin

As many of the more curious users have noticed, the WA5 Media Library includes song ratings (0 to 5 stars) for the first time. This lets one create a playlist (through ML) based on which songs are ranked the highest, like Windows Media Player. So, I thought it would be a great idea to include song-rating functionality on a skin I'm working on. I tried looking up the old posts on getItemMetaData(), but found nothing on ratings. Is the song rating stored in ID3, or in a Winamp-propriery database (my guess would be the latter)? How would one be able to get to this song rating info from MAKI? If not possible now, can someone say if it will be included in a future release, or when/if a SDK is released?
