Unfortunately, it seems like most people don’t actually read the
Guidelines section of the relationship type pages, resulting in people
ignoring my guideline regarding karaoke tracks:

It seems like the confusion is caused partially because of the wording
of the short description for the “instrumental” attribute.

I’d like to suggest a minor update to is; something along the lines of:

        This indicates that the recording is of an instrumental
        arrangement of a work which originally included vocals.

Hopefully, the mention that it would have to be a new arrangement should
be enough to clarify things. (It also clarifies the case of a
performance of a work which was originally instrumental, which was a
little ambiguous previously.)

Should this go up to another round of RFC/RFV? Anyone have any better
