An ask for whitelisting two tracks

I understand a bit the thing why tracks are "blacklisted" for containing only title named "track" with number of listened track, but it's a bit useless since there are many bands trying to avoid specific names of songs and leave them untitled, which soon becomes named "album name + number" or just "number".
But I understand it anyway.

But where it's coming to albums like "Track 10" by Skinny Puppy, or tracks like "Track 3" / "Track 1" by Accessoires, I'm nervous that noone gives a damn with whitelisting specific tracks which are "official".

So, one request: please, make "Track 3" and "Track 1" by Accessoires whitelisted. I'm sad that even last song in album is unreachable without bying a CD (it appears literally nowhere) and then I see two tracks are missing from my scrobbling list, just for sake of being blacklisted.. :<



EDIT: Here is the proof of Tracks 1 and 3 as being "official": https://www.discogs.com/Accessoires-Vendetta/release/954006

Best would be to whitelist all the Untitled/Unknown/Track songs automatically which are listed in databases such as Discogs and Musicbrainz, because if they are listed there, it is most likely the correct title.

@G.G.B. - that's true, but some releases are not listed there, and should be whitelisted as well.

And some update to this request - which wasn't solved yet (dear staff, please...?):

Track "Unknown" and single album "Unknown" by Trevor Something. Just got notification of releasing it, so I thought it's best to whitelist it as soon as possible:
https://trevorsomething.bandcamp.com/track/unknown

Edit: I mentioned this somewhere on GetSat, but not here, as I see now - "Unknown" by Bones is also missing whitelisting.

It's like Wikipedia, you can add them yourself to MusicBrainz if they're missing. For some websites like Bandcamp there are even userscripts to automate the importing. It might be easier for us to request the whitelisting in the forum, but this requires a lot of active work by the team to check every single case. And checking the validity of data is exactly what they already do on MusicBrainz. So I don't see why Last.fm isn't making use of this to whitelist automatically.
