It would be useful if you could request data for multiple recordings with only one request, rather than doing N requests.
The use case I'm thinking about is to collect data for all tracks of a release.
So an alternative could be to request by release MBID.

Good idea, but for now we don't have metadata in the server (I don't really want to trust release mbids, as there's no guarantee that they're correct [recording ids either, but that's another discussion])
We were thinking about setting up a slave that could be used for this kind of additional metadata task.

Requesting by release MBID was just a suggestion.
My real need is something like https://acoustid.org/webservice#list_by_mbid in order to create a "MusicBrainz / AcousticBrainz integration" script in a similary way to https://bitbucket.org/acoustid/musicbrainz-acoustid/src/
