hmm, i don't think there is this meaning there. all the other 'style'
guidelines are about how to adapt (or 'style') data found in
track/release titles to a consistent format. and wasn't the old CSG
essentially doing this? cos it seems wrong to get rid of that and
replace it with something that says how we should enter *works* rather
however the new document might covers all areas, in a way. it's just
like, with a release you take the data (tracklisting) you have and
style it to the desired format (ignoring anything that isn't mentioned
or a mistake), but with a work you would presumably research all the
details and get a complete picture (?) leading to more elaborate
tracktitles, etc. if that's the intention then maybe we can satisfy
both sides with some kind of use case examples?
