I would just press <pause/play.> and stop playback. Then choose the next album I want to listen to.
Your expressed preference is only "obvious" to you. :)
A politely expressed alternate point of view is hardly "aggressive denial." In fact, I think most (all?) would agree it would be nice to have the tagging capability you desire as yet another option.
I have found to truly achieve gapless play, especially cross-album and across all platforms, the trick is to concatenate all of the files into one, single large file. This is easy to accomplish and guarantees perfect, gapless playback.
Given how trivial this is to accomplish this may be a work around which is acceptable to you. Or not. :)
