to iTunes "importing" means to recode your file into an aac file in its own disguised folder system.
This is how people often accidentally duplicate everything they have.

Me, I tag all my CDs in EAC before ripping (anything less is not "exact audio"), and use MP3tag for everything else (inc. video files)
Both programs show the options we should have in Winamp, eg. multiple redundant sources.
Neither of those programs will be borked due to old age or abandonment, because they both offer the original CDDB service, as well as several moden alternatives.
I can fire up a CD player from 15 years ago and it will still fetch tags from CDDB.

Winamp is the only player of its class that put its eggs in 1 tagging basket.
