Are these points related?

Yes, it's the same issue.

This song is in french. In french, we don’t capitalize first letter of every word. This song should be named:

La belle dame sans regrets

Is there a reason why so many songs are badly reassigned to useless compilations when they were all in their rightful place some time ago?

We know very well where the songs assigned to these two albums were first released. They used to be assigned to it, but not anymore.
Little Richard, the Most Dynamic Entertainer of the Generation: His Greatest Hits
20 Super Hits (1976 rerecordings)

25th Anniversary shouldn’t be there, we know where these songs were first released. The original album is still there

It seems like the songs are automatically assigned to the latter release which is the exact opposite of what we want.

I noticed the same thing with some artists I'm knowledgeable about.

I've noticed that problem too, though they usually get fixed if you report them with the 'wrong album assigned' feature.

An album assignment issue just got fixed that should result in better assignments (and some of the reported wrong assignments getting fixed).

Can someone please remind me the policy on download only release such as this one:
https://www.discogs.com/fr/Jett-Rebel-eah-eah-eah-No/release/13330190

As for now, all five songs are called others.

That's a question for the musicbrainz team. As far as I understand, a release is considered “official” if it is available (in physical or digital format) for purchase. I'm not sure of their take on artist-endorsed free downloads.

For those wanting to deal with these kinds of problems more directly, it's not hard to join Musicbrainz, which allows you to edit these kinds of things yourself. They give you a trial period to make sure you're not a troll or crank, but if you make decent edits and don't start conflicts, then they give you a lot of leeway.

Would it be possible to display the album pie chart for artists who only have Covers and Others?

eg. https://www.setlist.fm/stats/albums/the-ramainz-3d63daf.html

It would help a lot in cleaning up cover assignments for acts like this.

Looking into it. But sounds reasonable to me.

A good thing, all no name albums by band are importable now. Not only one of them.

Is it some tweaking here or on musicrainz that makes that possible?
I remember once, we had used an album by Audionite to have two albums called Rancid for Rancid.
