I guess the concept I'm thinking of, where it might be a true release level
AR, would be something like "release normalization engineer" type of
mastering, where it can't be done to only a single track, as it truly is
release in scope, not track by track. The mastering/engineering equiv of
regular MP3 gain vs the "album gain" mode.
