Music Video is an interesting one, though maybe it fits under the same classification.
TV specials aren't always one episode so I don't think movie would fit. Here's an example of a 2-episode TV special soundtrack.

Here's the full list of classifications that all the popular anime database sites use:
TV (Series)
Web (Series)
TV Special
Music Video

Aside from missing the last two, I notice we do not distinguish between TV and Web (unless in the notes).
