For example why is this album "arrangement, remix"? Are some tracks 'more arranged' than others? Just because of its name?
The difference is a remix uses the audio from the original work, and an arrangement doesn't. That album probably contains both arranges and remixes, but I'm not expert. Remix is a relative latecomer to the category list.

I think this is what the Remaster category is used for.

Yeah, we could do this. Voice really only applies to games anyway. Voices in an anime track would probably get filed under Drama.
