Default Game discs with red book audio

I'm not sure if this has been addressed anywhere, but are there plans to add games with red book audio to the database? I think it could be a valuable feature, but I wasn't sure if they were currently allowed in the database or if there were any future plans regarding them.

The reason I ask is because I own several, but they weren't listed here. Thus I was wondering if I should or should not add them. :3

Redbook audio doesn't belong in with the soundtrack database. Sometime in the future, when we've figured out how we are going to catalog games, we could start building up data about each game's music, regardless of format.

A section dedicated to games with listenable redbook audio would be a great addition to the site, I think. Most of them will be Saturn games too. I, myself, have already ripped the redbook audio from all or most of my 40+ jp Saturn games. Fun stuff.

Might also be interesting to compare the MD5s of individual tracks on disc with those in an album. I wouldn't be surprised if some developers just released the redbook tracks straight off the disc. To my knowledge, there hasn't been a complete collection of redbook games. In addition, you'd have to wonder about the stuff on Manly Archive and games that save their music in mp3 format. But at that point, that sounds like it's stuff beyond what the site does... I don't think it makes sense to search for an album here and find a game instead.
