Default Changing Artist Info and Images With Liberate and FreeFloat FTP

I don't know if anyone else has tried and posted this, but it seems that using FreeFloat FTP in Liberate and a little bit of XML editing, one can change the bio and other artist info to whatever they wish. The directory for it is /Flash2/Content/Artist/, and each folder's name is the artist's UUID from the Zune Marketplace DB. I was also able to change the background completely by chance (it was in /Flash2/Content/0800/, but when I get back to my computer I'll do more research on that and post what I found.

EDIT #1:
It seems that after connecting the Zune to Zune Software and restarting, the custom data remains, which means it never updates the artist info.

It doesn't seem to mess up anything. Here's a picture I took of what I did with this (the original artist name was "Acid test" and it had a crappy B&W photo of the band):

No problem. Later on I'll write out the exact processes of what I did and maybe write a VB.NET program to easily generate the XML files.
