It is possible that there could be an album with 1 original track, 1 fan arrange track, 1 track which they previously put up for free distribution, 1 licensed track, and 1 bootleg track they stole from someone else's album, and had no right to redistribute. That would practically be unclassifiable here.
Right, that's part of what I've been saying is that using it like that seems to overlap with the classification of the album. Also, similar to what you've said, what about albums that have a single arrangement on them but are otherwise original work? It doesn't seem right to me for the whole thing to get classified 'fan-arrange' because of that.

I guess I'm withdrawing my position of 'ok with this.' It still has some problems to be worked out.
