      Description

      This issue came out after a conflicting edit where unclear/contradictory/obsolete guidelines/documentation have been spotted:

      1. Style/Artist_Credits suggests that "artist credits should generally follow the actual credit used on the release / track, including the join phrases"
      2. Style/Artist_Credits/Featured_artists counters that "each featured artist should be separated by a comma, with & before the last"
      3. Artist_Credits states that a similar example is "controversial".

      @jesus2099 reported that the second one might be outdated, so might be the third one.

      I hope that can be sorted out by simplifying the guidelines at the same time.
