* We could envisage a set of /primitive genres/ and a set of /secondary
genre/ to ensure compatibility with, says, winamp or mp3.com genre
categorizations. For instance, "black metal" would be a /secondary genre/
linked to the /primitive genre/ called /metal/ oe even /rock/ (but I guess
that would be far too broad).
* Another possibility, compatible, would be to have *two* /genre/ entries,
primitive and secondary genres. This kind of system is often use on
cascading menu on the web, when you have to select your state. (I'm from
Haute-Garonne, a department of France. When I select France on a
registration form, a second list is initialized and change "Alabama..." (US
states) to "Ain..." (France department).
You can see freeDB for more information.
Anyway the most imortant is to have a *standardized* categorization. I
anybody there is in the webstandard.org organisation...
