Another addition to the general topic of handling digital releases… iTunes has basically discontinued new submissions of iTunes LP releases. I mention this because should MB decide to properly capture that data, it is what it is now. Meaning there need not be consideration to future changes in structure.
I made this a separate topic since the handling of a digital release is not even decided, much less handling the iTunes LP releases. But they do exist and are very different and unique from any other digital release by any other store.
So there really is no question here aside from should MB capture the data for iTunes LP releases? I would say that currently, MB “ignores” such things. Meaning not by intent, but by default of circumstance. Although I do not see too much value in that data, I can see such releases being hard to get information on, especially as time passes. So for MB, this might be a nice thing to include, thinking in terms of a user years from now looking for information.
