Thanks for the information on the Italian 20 Lire I hadn't come across that one yet. I hear your point on not including things that have less than one percent in the alloy but from my point of view if I plan on including plated pieces such as the chrome plated WWII Canadian Nickel, which definitely has less than one percent chrome I should also need to include the minor alloys provided that they have a metal that isn't represented somewhere else in the set and provided that it is not an impurity in the alloy. So, I will be adding a Norway occupation 50 Ore and a late 1950's Italian 20 Lire to my set. The titanium in the 20 Lire is definitely there by design and I believe that the cadmium in the Ore coins is also there by design since there are other zinc coins from that time period that do not list cadmium in the same report and cadmium is added to zinc to increase its corrosion resistance.
