But the patch needs some work, I realized now. The "changed" flag in the
ID3 info screen needs to be re-introduced. And there are other places
where refreshes are needed...

On the other hand, by not showing the audio icon in the menu (menus are
menus, regardless of where you came from), you can use the audio and
param icons as an ID3 info indicator (makes sense; audio "parameters"
are being shown). And you always have the play icon indicating that
something is playing.
