If an audio CD contains a data track at the end which is not visible
in an audio CD player, it should not be included in the main part of the
tracklist. If the data track contains audio or video tracks,
those tracks should be entered in the data tracks section of the
tracklist (enabled by selecting the “This disc contains data tracks at
the end” option in the release editor). If an audio CD contains a
data track which is visible in an audio CD player (typically as the
first track), use [data track] as the track name. If the data track is
on a Various Artists release, use [data] as the artist for the track.
I’m wondering how relevant this part still is now that we have proper data tracks. Consider this release. According to the album art, there are three tracks, two normal audio and a third as a video (it’s an enhanced CD). I’m pretty sure that the data track will not show up in a CD player (but I can’t test that, I don’t own it), but I also think we have data tracks for exactly this reason. However the guideline seems to forbid this use. How should I proceed and should the guideline be amended?
