I voted for standardization because many times publishers are inconsistent with formatting for what is supposed to be a consistent series of numbers. The stem, beginning number, and optional ending number are the relevant data. The spaces, dashes, and repeated numbers are just excess.

However, there are some publishers that release albums with catalog numbers that are very different from most Japanese publishers, so this may not be able to be applied to all cases.
