When a movie lists one "Supervising Art Director" and a couple of "Art Directors" who should be listed? Both, only the "Supervisor Art Director" or only the "Art Directors"?
http://www.invelos.com/dvdpro/contributions/Rules.aspx?display=credits

Example:
The Harry Potter Movies. There is one "Supervising Art Director" (Neil Lamont) and a couple of "Art Directors" in the credits. Some existing profiles list both groups as "Art Director", sometimes only the "Art Directors" can be found and the "Supervising Art Director" is missing.

The rules state both. A "supervising art director" is still an "art direector."

Thats my problem.
The rules state for example:
Role:
Writer
credited as:
Writer
Written by

or
Role:
Director of Photography
credited as:
Director of Photography

or:
Role:
Production Designer
credited as:
Production Designer

but:
Role:
Art Director
credited as:
Supervising Art


The credited as: Art Director is missing in this field, there is only Supervising Art... 


Sorry for my english, but I hope I can state my point...

I understand your confusion as 'art director' was not included as an example credit.  But, since it matches the profiler credit I would include it.
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

In Martin_Zuidervliet's defense, I don't see anything in the rules stating not to include unit art directors.

it's still an official statement iirc

but yeah, it needs to be made more clear in the rules, currently they only mention unit credits for some roles

general rule always was and is (but should be added to the rule document):

no unit crew, no location crew
