Track Associations For Stems

I'm doing a track layout for mixing a feature, and realized I don't know whether to group source music in with score, background, or what. I can see arguments either way, since source music sometimes morphs into score---but from a mixing standpoint, it will usually be placed in the same environment as the dialogue and fx. When doing M & E, where is source music normally found?

For TV i ve always assigned source and score on the same stem except for rare occasions when the source is used in a musical scene (signing on screen by the actors) then the cue have to be music and lyrics on different stems. And all the ME i ve received for MOW french dubbing, source and score were on the same stem. I dont see a problem to put source and score on different stems it s a luxury for international dubbing but it might confused the delivery departement... I m talking about fictional stuff , documentaries is different
