There was general consensus about going with @chirlu’s second listed option on the ticket, «Detect ambiguity and say something like “circa 61 years” or “60 or 61 years”.», leaving the exact wording to whomever actually makes a PR implementing it.

Consensus for «hide/disable these controls when there is no change to the artist name».
