The current issue with tracklisting is that there's no way to have partial translations. My ideal system would be like:

Default | English
1. 春風
2. ice mist
3. Omelette au fromage

Default | English
1. Spring breeze
2. ice mist
3. Cheese omelette

Only tracks 1 and 3 will have entries in the "english" tracklist. So translations are done by overlaying the default (verbatim) tracklist with only the tracktitles that have changed. With the "default" title we also avoid pegging tracklists that have 90% english and 10% japanese tracktitles as "Japanese". Plus we stop setting particular tracklists as a "default" one -- this should be done dynamically according to a user's language settings.
