In cases like emms-playlist-mode I've always thought that it would be
cool to be able to freely annotate the buffer (I still do). Perhaps
that's what I was thinking... but who really knows since some of this
code is easily over 10 years old.

I wouldn't change it unless there is a compelling reason to do so.
