Umm. . . I'd wanna see the cite on this distinction, particularly since a "melody" is part of a musical work (though not always - see "counterpoint"), and not considered a musical work in and of itself. At least, not according to my theory profs in college. But since your point is unmentioned, I'll drop it, unless you wanna start a thread in GD or CS.
