Only if you consider discography to start with a physical artifact.
If, as has long been established, it starts with the creation point
of the music (i.e., the recording session), then you can document
plenty of things that may NEVER have been issued.
And besides, procedures for cataloging even streaming audio have been
documented, so the world will adapt.
