Ok, weird...
Maybe I just don't understand how these are supposed to work...

@Steven, inside a Virtual Tag, the provided function examples work, but when used in the Track Information panel, all of them, except $Sum(<Play Count>,<Artist>), just display zero.
Halp!

its a bug but for now if you assign the formula to a virtual tag it will work

edit:
this should fix the issue:

Dope! It's working. Thanks for the quick turn around.
Now to think of different use combinations.

Using a function inside the second argument of either $Sum() or $Count() in the Track Information panels returns garbage values and clears sets the argument to <>.
For example, $Sum(<Play Count>,$Split(<Sort Artist>,;,1)) results in $Sum(<Play Count>,<>) and a random garbage value as the result.
