My thinking about an ID3 database is that it should probably be a plugin, simply because it's a GUI-grabbing function. At least my picture of it (a tool for searching for tracks and building playlists).
I also think you should waste as much disk space as you want, if it saves cpu processing and/or RAM needs. We all have gigs and gigs of disk space, but just a few measly kilobytes of ram to play with.
I don't think you should worry about avoiding disk access, since that won't be possible anyway. The database is on disk, and must be searched on disk. Use the disk to its' fullest, that's what it's there for.
