      SongKong has the concept of matching to a release and matching song only, so we have an option that means a song wont be matched to a release unless all songs in grouping are matched to the same release. But this isn't the issue in this case it is only matching the song , the theory being this is better than nothing and also with data added for some songs it may allow for a complete release match later on, and we are only adding updating song metadata such as song title, and not release specific fields such as release title or trackno especially if we had no metadata in the first place.

      However I can see that even altering the song title only could sometimes cause an issue especially with Classical Music (e.g song title with and without work included) so disparity between songlonly matches and no matches at all. so I will add new option Modify Existing Metadata when Song Only Match (better to use +ve rather than _ve options) that is enabled by default but can be disabled so that such a match would only cause new missing song specific data to be added without modifying existing data.
