If you really are interested in bringing musically inclined people
into the picture, you might be a little more specific.  "Mistake"
is a very loaded word.  It can mean an incorrectly played part
by a musician, or it could be something which strikes us as "wrong"
although it was intentionally placed there by the composer so it
would get that effect.  Or maybe what to one ear is a mistake is
a nice touch to another.  Or maybe by 'mistake' you mean 'an error
in musical strategy', like having Laura's theme appear in the wrong
place; or maybe it means a mixdown error on the part of the
recording engineers.  See what I mean?
