Doesn't (customize-set-variable 'emms-player-mpv-update-metadata t)
work for that use-case with mpv already?

Dunno about 'description tag itself - can't 'name be used for similar
purposes already?

And if a fixed one-liner description with some custom meaning is
needed, I'd think it'd make sense to have a custom info function to
interpret it somehow.
