Normally a commentary track gets listed twice. In the bonus feature section and in the audio tracks section.
But the audio track section should only contain tracks of the disc's main feature, shouldn't it?
So when the commentary is not part of the main feature, but for a separate version of the movie listed only under the bonus features menu should it get listed in the audio tracks section?
For example:
The uncut main feature has two language tracks available and an old cut version (listed in the bonus feature menu) has the the commentary track available.
This commentary tracks gets listed as bonus feature but also in the audio section?
Think different

Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.

I think there may be some confusion here, because there is no "Bonus Features". Possibly a language confusion if you're running Profiler in German?

Apart from the audio track listing, there is the "Commentary" checkbox under Features, and then there is the "Other Features" textbox. If a commentary exists for something other that the main feature, then it should only be listed (if at all) in Other Features, in my opinion. I suspect that is what you meant?

Not really. This would be a new option I haven't thought of.
I mean the normal checkbox for a commentary in the feature section and a possible entry in the audio track section.

A commentary audio track should be listed as an audio track, whether it is only available for the theatrical version or unrated version on a disc that includes both IMO.

If it is a for a short film or something which is nothing other than an actual bonus, then yes, bonus feature only.

Personally, I wouldn't include the commentary as a feature in the main feature at all.  It would be like adding audio tracks for "making of" documentaries or other featurettes.

However, I would probably create a new variant profile based on the disc ID for the bonus feature, and add the commentary track to that profile.

Only if kept local, the rules for alternate versions say: Do not use for: Different cuts of the same film
