Comment(by proper):

 Replying to ioerror:
 > The main question for me is how well the 'as=' ( see
 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnet_URI#Normal_.28as.29 ) field actually

 Maybe not the most reliable source to answer this, but see:

 (xs and as columns)

 Some bittorrent clients support it, some bittorrent clients do not support
 it, popular ones among them. For example, µTorrent doesn't support it.

 So depending on how you implement it, it may happen that this magnet link
 works for some users while it doesn't work for others. Not sure if this
 would add confusion.
