Protect FLAC Tags against Remove operation similar to Mpeg options?

Is there a way to protect FLAC file tags from removal?

I am performing a major cleanup of my library and am removing all superfluous Tags and renaming tracks/albums in a standard format. However, I have several instances where a folder of FLAC tracks is included and when I use REMOVE TAGS, set under options (Mpeg) to ONLY REMOVE ID3v1 and APE tags, all of the FLAC tags get removed as well. There is no equivalent "Tags" setting under Options for FLAC files analogous to Mpeg files. Does anyone know how to accomplish this, or should this be a feature request?

This is the dialogue in question:

Any kind of data removal should always pinpoint only those files where it really should happen.
So, a filter would be nice, like
%_tag% HAS V1

There is only one way to tag FLAC files properly: with Vorbis Comment tags.
This is not the case for MP3s which allow several standards.
So if you want to remove a single tag version, then you need a way to select only this and leave the other versions alone.
I am pretty sure that if you use a function to remove a whole tag (version) then your observation would also apply to mp4, wav, mkv files.
I still think that a filter would be the best preparation.

Many thanks, that mostly helps as a workaround, but it would still be very useful, not to mention more consistent to enable that global option for all supported media types/tag types.
