Default publisher & distributor

I wonder if it's possible to add a new option in label link page
there are publisher, distributor and imprints

what about a "Publisher & Distributor" option making the album "Published by <label selected> (Distributed by <label selected>)" ?
because a lot of labels publish(manufacture) and distribute their stuff and you can't add a distributor for the same label

or not to remove the label after assigning the publisher

I think our original stance was to assume that the distributor and publisher are the same unless a distributor is specified.

but a lot of albums have no distributor assigned, so you could think either the label is the same as the distributor or no distributor has been assigned yet
for some labels like vap or victor it's not annoying, but for other ones it's different
you can't assume the distributor is the same for all albums that have no distributor assigned
