Yes, an RG split is solely due to gameplay differences. DLC also don't count, as these are separate add-ons. I didn't implement a way to flag "special" releases, yet, but that seems to be lower priority, I guess.
Maybe having two separate title fields could be used here. One for the actual title, one for other parts of the title that applies to a R, but not RG (ie. Greatest Hits, International, Collector's Edition, Ultimate Hits, Platinum, etc.)

That one here has an interesting RG split for the PS2 platform: http://wiki.oregami.org/display/OR/Final+Fantasy+X
The International version has additions that are also part of the European releases, but not the North-American or original Japanese ones.
Interesting, indeed, what additions? There are two Japanese releases added to both RGs, why that?
Some FF titles have have had later re-releases tagged as International, either because of additions made in the localization, or other additions made after the original release: http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Inte ... al_Version
The Kingdom Hearts series also had a similar treatment: the Final Mix releases.
In this specific case, "This edition of Final Fantasy X includes new Sphere Grids, new bosses such as the Dark Aeons, and with a bonus disc filled with special features. The International version is the only version of Final Fantasy X that was released in Europe and for that reason was not tagged with the "International Edition" tag. "
Each of the RGs have the regular edition, and the budget releases (Mega Hits and Ultimate Hits for the International). Square-Enix created the Ultimate Hits brand for budget re-releases of their games. I believe it is somehow the equivalent to the European Platinum releases and North-American Greatest Hits, except it's not console-specific.

I think that the PS Vita release needs to be a separate R entry, because otherwise we won't be able to distinguish the release dates between the three platforms. That's because the release date isn't saved with the RG <---> R connection, but elsewhere (R <---> Region). If we'd do a single R for all three platforms, we'd have 2 release dates linked to it, but couldn't show the earlier date for PS3/PSP, and the latter date for PS Vita.
I see, it does make sense that way. I figure there is a way to link the different RGs that are actually the same version of the game?
