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,

  10 => 56d82971-7206-4000-ad48-1f3f6bba34a5,
  11 => 35409bd7-4d10-4db1-9c9e-98b7f6fed597,

}

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.

Problems

How to normalize multi-part releases? Many releases will need ordering standardized:

DVD
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).
CD-extra
what order for any music contained on the data track? before or after the Redbook data?
phonograph
How can this work with medium ordering, for discs that are intended to be stackable (mediums have track order like 1/8, 2/7, 3/6, 4/5)
