A TOC could be built from acoustIDs with a simple list…

{ index => acoustID }

So a complete acoustID-TOC would look something like this

{ 01 => 1b6f48e9-f318-4674-90a1-4299ddc4c9e1,
  02 => ce741843-aa44-4abe-a6e6-bc36fc8b94c6,
  03 => 86c9a132-72ac-42e0-a4fc-eacdcfcba2f3,
  04 => 416d8a93-5a33-4bba-9b96-171856e95c5a,
  05 => edf50881-4927-4635-ac43-28ab51d000dc,
  06 => 93a30489-2cdb-467b-a4b3-632062f2de16,
  07 => 27fdd97d-695c-4564-a538-91664b9c0091,
  08 => 7bd211f3-c323-4658-b20c-ded602639400,
  09 => 5dc2bb66-e01d-4a6e-afbc-e842bd3fbf3e,
  10 => 56d82971-7206-4000-ad48-1f3f6bba34a5,
  11 => 35409bd7-4d10-4db1-9c9e-98b7f6fed597,
  12 => c186f09b-db28-4fd4-8d15-2c4c8b24b9cb,
  13 => 6fc1c15a-9357-4d8a-9dce-b706324f28f7,
  14 => 4f07962f-0e88-4231-9da6-d1ad89e20506,
  15 => 7feba6f4-73b0-4072-87f2-d267812529b5,
  16 => b9946c38-f439-4906-873b-b332811a0c42,
  17 => 6a5fe000-66a3-424b-a6bf-972738fc2a16,
  18 => a7301431-dd59-4e58-83e3-120fe3219467,

  19 => a72bac67-83a7-4044-a292-6257cad926f2,
  20 => 48ccdac1-ab1d-47df-8c30-c71fd188fc17,
  21 => 9175b8a3-769c-45ae-b82a-4c3ddfde90df,
  22 => 39e120ca-3e1a-4d65-99ed-7887dd6577fb,
  23 => e2394dd7-06b2-499c-ab0e-4a638f039f77,
  24 => 9d4a1d88-d17c-4f84-ad27-c7e922f6a797,

  25 => 8b08ff86-6ecf-4057-92cb-0efa5f451767
}

Note that the 'index' is *not* anything to do with the physical medium, i.e. index 1 above is not track 1 of a CD. It’s only for ordering; the query is, “what releases have the above fingerprints, in the above order?”. The index is necessary in case one of the recordings is skipped.

The main problem with this system, is how to normalize multi-part releases. For DVD, in particular, it’s necessary to make sure that the titles are always in the same order, and that audio tracks are also always in the same order (e.g. LPCM stereo tracks consistently before or after AC3 5.1, etc.). DualDisc needs the side-order standardized: DVD first or CD first? (DVD side also has the considerations above). What about CD-extra?
