My gut is with Magnus on this one. I might not be understanding the
other side, but what is the argument for having embedded art trump
directory art?

I always come back to "do I need a PC within my control to 'fix'
behavior?" as my test.

If embedded trumps directory I need to access a tagging program to
change the behavior, in other words I need a PC I control.

If directory art trumps embedded art I simply need a way to copy files
onto my DAP, or move files from within my DAP. I can do that at the
library, at a hotel's computer, pretty much anywhere.
