Default Adding New Media Fields

Is it possible to add Blu-spec CD and SHM-CD to the Media field of "Submit a new album" page and the "Edit" thing?

Well, we could add them if they are common enough, and if they are different enough from our existing formats to warrant their inclusion.

From what I know of these 2 formats, they are an improvement over an ordinary CD in terms of reading accuracy, but they are playable on standard CD players. I'm not sure they are different enough. While I'm not afraid of adding new formats, we don't want the media field to start looking as cluttered as the platform field.

Quoting from HydrogenAudio for truth:
Digital data are media independent. Even you write the bits on a sheet of paper, it will stay the same as on CD/DVD/HD/FLOPPY/RAM/FLASH etc.
All these enhanced CD 'standards' are audiophile scam...
