In the world of jazz, in which lead sheets are the most prominent, that is the standard.

This is actually a pretty good idea. If someone wanted to make a lead sheet, we could require that you make it in every key (C , Bb, Eb, and bass clef)? Then we wouldn't just have one key if this song and another key of that song etc.

Honestly, this is probably our best solution to our "We-have-way-too-many-files-per-track!!" problem. Just one lead sheet in C could easily suffice.

Though I do like the dropdown menu that Winter suggested. For Duets and Two Pianos and Lead Sheets and Orchestral and Ensembles and etc.

that seems like too much work for not enough... reward(?) IMO

Idk what word to use cuz we don't get anything anyway, but basically I don't think many people will use all of them so it seems wasteful.

 If we were going to pick a single transposition to do lead sheet in, Bb is probably the most popular used trans. for lead sheets (really, treble clef C is probably one of the least popular transpositions for this idea). Although tbh, this idea of having lead sheets doesn't really work unless you provide all the transpositions. Lead sheets are supposed to be generalized so that multiple different kinds of instruments can benefit from them.

I don't think anybody was suggesting we are required to make all these sheets, this is not like the PDF project where we are expected to create and upload 2000+ files, it is a method that allows any amount of variety on any amount of sheets, small or large. No work is required that hasn't already been done by an arranger who wanted that product on the site. If somebody bothered arranging it, it also must be something somebody eventually wants to read...

This is exactly right.

We've been trying to accomplish this over at VGLeadSheets.com.  We currently have over 300 lead sheets that have been getting a lot of usage in the Jam Clinic at MAGFest.  Every sheet is peer-reviewed and goes through a review process so that the number of mistakes in the final product are minimal.
