Nobody saw there was one mistake in my first test: track 3 should use the dash, but tracks 5 and 14 are correct.
No, track 5 is correct IMO. But track 7, 17 and 23 are not. The difference is that different scenes are considered as different movements, while different songs in one scene is similar to different parts in a movement.

In disc 3 track 4, I would have put the act number only once.
Again, see "Complex examples" on OperaTrackStyle.
Repeating the act here is just as redundant as repeating the name of the symphony or the sonata when there are two movements on the same track.
I agree with you on both these though, so are the "Complex examples" wrong?
I would have simplified the second set:
Don Giovanni: Act III, Scene I. "Là ci darem la mano" / Scene II. "Another song in a different scene"
Don Giovanni: Act III, Scene I. "Là ci darem la mano" / Scene II. An Instrumental Part in a Different Scene
I should have seen it before :(
MultipleTitleStyle does not take classical music problems into account. I suppose this should be our next StyleGuide: defining in clear terms and rules what separators should be used and when. Some users have tried recently to trigger discussions on this matter, but without much success. The subject isn't very exciting, but I suggest we should settle it and then apply to the different classical sub-styles. Else we will end up with different rules for orchestral, chamber and operas!
