The solution will have to be different now that "change track artists" is gone; but the problem still seems to exist as far as I can tell.

There are several tickets to do with track artists, so I've tried to make the summary clearer.

There are obviously cases where you definitely wouldn't want to overwrite the track artists, so I'm guessing it would need to be a bit smarter (e.g. show a preview and ask whether to update tracks where the track artist matches the release artist)
