I would prefer we keep the work type we used previously on some of
these (although I'm not sure if this was ever really accepted or used
by all editors), i.e.,

Song, K. 147 "Wie unglücklich bin ich nit"
Cantata, BWV 147 "Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben"

So that the works are generally grouped by work in work lists, my
media library, and so on.  On the other hand, I never applied this
universally myself, and would find it stupid on larger works like
operas and oratorios; I don't really know where the draw the line.
