My perfect system

  • tracks have MBIDs.
  • recordings get merged a lot more than they do now.

I like the FRBR model, which in musicbrainz has a good mapping for albums, and I believe we should have the same mapping for songs:

FRBR MB album MB song
work work work
expression release group recording
manifestation release track
item ___ ___

So when recordings should be merged etc.. should follow Expression as defined in 3.2.2 at http://archive.ifla.org/VII/s13/frbr/frbr_current3.htm#3.2 .

Why

Currently tracks on my local disc have recording MBIDs (and artist, album artist and release MBIDs I guess). But those ids are not useful for identifying a particular file on disc, or linking other data to a particular file, because there are releases where I have different versions of the release, and thus have different files with the same recording MBID.
