I think album artist is just a much more logical way of organizing songs
than artist is, since a lot of times a CD has tracks by different
artists, but the CD itself is organized by a single group. (A common

Ross' Greatest Hits.)

I agree that this would be nice. MusicBrainz, to list one working
example, stores this kind of information. Here's one instance; I was
actually trying to load this entire album into my queue yesterday and
it proved a bit difficult:

For the record, Rockbox supports this organization for portable audio players.
