I noticed that the Original Release Date tag (or ORIGINALDATE as shown in Vorbis) holds a YYYY-MM-DD value. I was wondering if that field can also hold YYYY-MM or YYYY values. There are albums where the day of the release is not known. Or maybe both the month and day are not known, just the year. So, should I always insert into ORIGINALDATE the most data I have about an album?
Also, I noticed that DATE is used in Picard to specify the DATE of the release (not original realase). For example, if Laura Branigan’s 1982 album was remastered in 1994, then DATE will hold 1994, the date of the remastered album. Is it correct to store the date of the remaster in the DATE field?
