RE: Handling CD, SACD-Stereo and SACD-Multi versions of same recording
My SACDs are ripped as DSF files, but even when editing MP3 files JRiver Media Center never offers the option to set a value for DiscSubTitle. I guess JRiver must either be unaware of this tag, have given it a different name or think that no one ever uses it.

However, the distinction between standard and custom tags is unlikely to be of any significance in the context of this discussion, as MinimServer is happy to accept both.

Both DiskSubTitle, explained here (intended for Multidisc Albums)
and also the Group tag, explained here (intended for Groups and compositions)
are used by MinimServer to group tracks within albums when it generates the index, while the outcome is a littlebit different which is best to compare yourself. The hierarchy as I believe is
Album
->DiskNumber, DiscSubTitle
-->Group

I don't know about JRiver, I use Kazoo but also other Control Points which all process this very well... I do the tagging with Mp3tag.
Sorry I would, but it's too complicated to insert a screenshot here..

I use this in DSF (ID3v2.3) and FLAC... standard or custom, whatever

I wasn't previously aware that Simon had blessed the DiskSubTitle tag with special properties within MinimServer. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I shall give it a closer look.

I don't have a tag called Group stored in my music files, but a long time ago Simon helped me to make my custom Work tag work in a similar fashion by using specific aliasTags and indexTags settings in my MinimServer configuration (though I don't fully understand how it works).

RE: Handling CD, SACD-Stereo and SACD-Multi versions of same recording
So if you used the suggestion of using DiscNo and DiscSubtitle then your versions of the same release could be displayed as a single release with 3 discs, each discs representing a different encoding. I think that would sort of work and your album count would be correct, but of course you would have to manually enter the DiscNo, Discsubitle values as you wouldn't be using those fields for their intended use. The other issue is that if you have any genuine multidisc albums that are transcoded you would lose the ability to represent their multidiscness.

Group is simply a way to group a sequence of contiguous tracks on a release and play as a single piece of music, i.e a work.

RE: Handling CD, SACD-Stereo and SACD-Multi versions of same recording
I'm already using DiscNo for its intended purpose and don't wish to lose that information, so it looks like I will have to live with my existing solution for SACDs.
