Fair enough. Now that my initial enthusiasm about Opus has faded, I think I'll prefer Vorbis which doesn't have these issues.

Are you sure you're not confusing REPLAYGAIN_ with R128_?
I see R128 as a refined method for estimating loudness, which is faster and more accurate in uncommon cases like multichannel music. The advantage of using the old RG reference level and tags is that it automatically works in all existing software, without any need to convice developers to implement a new format and waiting for them to come round and do it.
