Additional Story Development credits

The Disney film "Pocahontas" https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114148/reference  has several people listed in BOTH the Writer section and Other Crew section with 'additional story development' credits.  I am almost certain it is correct for that credit to be in the Writer section but wanted to make sure before making any deletions.

On a related note, I saw a thread from a couple months ago mentioning the confusion regarding some of the possible Writing credits such as story consultants and script consultants.  Is there any way of updating the Writers submission guide and giving us more guidance about whether some of these borderline credits belong in the Writers section or Other Crew section?  One possible idea on your end is to block certain attributes from being added to the Writers section.  For example, I know you block people from entering an attribute of 'editor' in the Editor section or 'art director' in the Art Director section.  So, if say a script consultant should never be entered as a Writer, than you can put it on an exclusion list?  Just an idea.  Thanks so much!

Hi Brett,

Thank you for raising this with us.

Following an investigation into the data we had live on the title, we have determined that, in this case, these credits should be
listed within the "writer" section and not under "other".These changes should be live on the title within the next 24 hours.

Do let us know if you have any other questions or queries. 
Charlie.
