Are collaborations going to be listed twice (for each author) with the upcoming updates?

So, I just scrobbled from Spotify the album Rayuela by Laurent Coq and Miguel Zenón. It is listed in my library as a Laurent Coq's album only.
With the new announced improvements for the database, will it be assigned to Miguel Zenón too when scrobbling again, so that both artist will get that album listed in my library? If so, will this be also retroactive, thus updating already scrobbled albums?

Let's hope not, a scrobble equals a listen. If they started assigning multiple scrobbles for 1 listen to several artists than having an oversight of how much you listen to music will go completely out the door. You wouldn't be able to tell anymore especially when it's done retroactively.
Perhaps if a scrobbled track would be divided among artists so half a scrobble for one and another half for the other I would find that to be a better solution.

These cases could be shown for both artists but counted as only 1 scrobble for the purpose of the library. I.E. monday you listen 5 times Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie. both Queen and David Bowie would show 5 scrobble each on that day, but your library won't show 10 scrobblings, only 5.
