Default Notes Section

The notes section currently comprises of translated text. Is it possible to have this reformatted to a tabbed layout which includes the original language? Sometimes we can obtain the original liner notes that are shown in the scans, but do not have the knowledge or time to transcribe them. I think it would be beneficial to include this text in a similar manner to what the track-list looks like, because someone can come in later and do the work if they choose to.

Visually, this would consist of what is currently shown:
[Translation] (All text from the scans, as well as related information.)
[Whatever language the release is from] (All text from the scans in this language, in the original format/layout - at least what is acceptable in web standards).

Even if this information can be posted in the discussion threads for the releases, doesn't this mean it's not searchable?

I found a thread that mentioned talk of a split, but the thread is almost 10 years old and the discussion doesn't seem as if it was finalised.

I don't think this is necessary. I sometimes leave stuff untranslated and then point this out in the corresponding thread. Eventually these bits are translated.
