Re: Music schema proposal


1. It looks like on there is
a wrongful expected type for the musicArrangement property ?  Instead of it
expecting a musicComposition, should it expect an AlbumRelease ?  Looks
like a typo error or something...

2. It seems that trackNumber on MusicComposition might be the wrong place
for that property ?  But then It seems like the intent for MusicComposition
is to encapsulate the idea of a "Song" and in that case, to easily cluster
together multiple recordings of the same work (a MusicComposition) by the
same artist ?  But if that is the case the schema does not currently fit
into that mold.  Can you explain why trackNumber is on MusicComposition ?
