Probably not.  My "estimate" was really just a guess.

No.  I have used MPD on some machines, it works well.  But the version I
ran did not recognize albumartist etc.  Recent versions do, however.

I wouldn't dare to call any backend "natural", as I would expect users
to have wildly different setups.  They are emacs users, after all...
Also, MPD takes more effort to set up properly.
