AIFF audio files can be tagged with ID3v2 tag, the same metadata format that is used for MP3 files. Tagging AIFF files this way does not break the AIFF format, which is extensible by nature. Any well-behaved AIFF reader is able to handle every AIFF file even if doesn't understand the ID3v2 tag, in which case it simply ignores it.
