Something like that looks reasonable.
One major comment, though, is that the output of
tar should be parsable, i.e., it should be possible
to look at the output, figure out what format it is,
and parse it reliably.  The current format doesn't have
that property, but these extended formats ought to, no?

A nit: in your proposal the tar -tvvvf output didn't have the
trailing "." or "+" that the tar -tvvf output did -- was
that a typo, or if not then what's going on?
