Well thats good, if they are not in the MusicBrainz db they are no use
to anyone anyway. So does the Musicbrainz db need to throw out valid
(but less used) trms to further prune the MusicBrainz Server, or do we
just want to remove trms from database that are wrong (links to tracks
which they shoudldnt be linking to).
