Yeah, something along those lines.

Sony corporate history, April 2014:
Sony Music Records Inc. absorbs SME Records Inc., Sony Music Associated Records Inc., Epic Records Japan Inc., Defstar Records Inc., Ariola Japan Inc., Ki/oon Music Inc., Sony Music Japan International Inc. and changes its corporate name to Sony Music Labels Inc.

Sony Music Distribution (Japan) Inc. absorbs Sony Music Network Inc. and changes its corporate name to Sony Music Marketing Inc.

ultraCeep Inc. is founded.

This is a good idea though it would definitely take some work. Especially since the major companies all function differently.

I'll be curious to see what Phono has to say about all of this since he's the one that adds most of these new labels/mergers/etc.
