Riff makes a lot more sense than a paper card index for keeping track 
of documentation of sound segments.  Simply because it becomes part 
of the sound you are keeping track of.

I use Riff for documentation of sound segments. I am very sure 
that .wav will always support riff.  I wish that there was a database 
program that was based on riff written for audio libraries. With the 
advance of all these music playing software programs you would think 
that someone would figure out how to data base to both riff and tags.
