It's only contrary to ''one'' of the ways it is understood...

Tradition doesn't have to smite common-sense ''every'' time! Look,

Biography - Bibliography, Discography, Filmography

It would be similarly confusing to use "Discography", as it applies in
its alternate meanings
(http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=discography), for such
