Default How to distinguish between "Arranged" and "Remix"

What exactly is the difference between these two classifications?

Arranged pieces are ones that are re-done for a different instrumentation or style, whereas Remixes include or overlap elements from multiple different pieces.

Well, technically I'd consider it a remix if it includes the original track in the composition, whether it's actually sampled, or uses the original midi file.
