It would be nice if the artists of Sampers get listed as "Various Artists" in the Artist Mode.

Could be done with a "Various" tag like in foobar or using the fact that there is more than one artist on a album.
This task depends upon

I think the "Album Artist" tag, which is supported, fits perfectly here.

True. But it would be much more handy if the "Track Artist" is used as "Album Artist" if it is empty.
