      Description

      There are different style guidelines for adding classical releases which mean some of fields are used in a completely different way. But when adding a new release its not always clear what is a classical release, and even if they are clearly classical that still doesn't mean that the editor will add the release using the CSG. This means its impossible to programmatically work out if a release is using the CSG or not, it would be helpful if the editor could set a flag to indicate when they are using CSG.

      An example of where this would be useful, the track artist credit usually stores the track as credited on the release ( which is usually the performer) but if using CSG it always store just the composer regardless of how the tracks are credited. Without the flag there is no reliable way to know how what track artist field represents on the release.
