Update style guide? [promotion] as subset of [unknown] for radio promotion spots?

Hi there,

I’m working through my back-catalogue of very old CD’s that I collected when working in community radio.

A number of these have radio promotion spots comprising a voiceover and snippits of various songs and/or other media.

The artist credit is often listed as [unkonwn] or [no artist].

I think [promotion] or [media package] or something similar should be listed as a subset of [unknown] for this purpose.

The other approach would be to list the label/promoter as the artist, but this seems to be misleading.

What do people think? Is it work updating the style guide for special purpose artists?
