Since the same is also true of "Arrangement", perhaps we should add one more attribute such as 'having no connection to products we cover' (it's game, anime or something oriented from either). The definition of "Arrangement" may not be easy, but one point I'd want to see emphasized is that a piece of music that is an arrangement of something should still be considered "Original Soundtrack" as long as it's used in the game. I think this policy is consistent with the way we've classified soundtracks like Dissidia.

Like the definition you gave a little while ago, I think it'd be better to emphasize that the biggest difference is whether people in character or not.
Talk - This should only be used for tracks where the actors or composers are speaking, but are not in character.
Drama - This covers stories, monologues, and radio shows where everyone is in character.
