Custom metadata tags.

Is it possible to add a custom metadata field to file? I would like to allow the user to be able to add a field "noxfade" to the metadata of a file but when I tested with ArbiTag it doesn't stick. I'm assuming the input plugins are filtering metadata fields it's not specifically programmed to recognize even though a number of the tagging formats allow user/custom fields (this thread seems to confirm my suspicions.) If I'm correct and the input plugins (the core input plugins) are filtering unrecognized metadata fields, is it possible instead then to store custom fields into the media library? (which I originally wanted to avoid.)
