just put a column in calibre to say " I have this also as an audio book" & use a MEDIA library for the MEDIA - duh!

otherwise you'll next be wanting a calibre "player", support for m4b bookmarks.... mp3/aac/m4a/m4b conversions

then its onto can we include radio play adaptions...

followed by hey I have the movie of the book can I put that in calibre also ?

& I want calibre to convert my .mkv movie into .wmv. & stream it to my xbox

you already have a universal format library and playback manager - it's called WINDOWS
Most of that stuff can exist in any MP3 file via ID3 tags.

How often do you select an MP3 BY its bit rate or # of channels .
That is nice to know stuff like Publisher, publication date ( I don't think I have ever chosen a book to read by Publisher or published date, in my 60 years of reading. I have gone looking for earlier editions. )
