For when a programmer is in the studio live and is selecting their own
music, I would imagine it would be up to that programmer to ensure the
regulation(s) are complied with.  As pointed out in the original post,
this could include a live announcement containing all the information
required of the track in question.

For me where things do get trickier is the automated situation where a
log is generated.  From what I understand of the patch, the logic works
like this:

-When track Y is added and cart X is listed in field L in the database,
then schedule cart X first then cart Y.

I can see the value of having this type of logic in rdlogedit and
rdlogmanager.  For consistency I could see also putting it into
RDAirplay (if 2 apps are going to work the same way, when adding carts
of type Y to the log, then  it is best to have this same everywhere that
a cart of type Y can be added to a log).

However for such a feature I'd want to have a toggle in RDAdmin to turn
it on / off.

Accordingly, I don’t think it would make sense to include this in the stock Rivendell distribution.
