The plan is just to have the print run field, # of albums sold/downloaded is way too unreliable a statistic to include.
I like your idea, but tracking downloads is akin to tracking emails being sent to to people-- there is no current technology that can do it, and tally up all downloads from files with specific hashes/MD5 checksums from all over the Internet. It would be easier to track # of albums sold, I think, but you would probably have to rely on the official distributor for that information, which would leave out sellers on Ebay, second-hand shops, etc. But it is a good idea, IMHO.
