I suspect that's the only nearly-standard place to put it. However, it  
seems to me that an 0xx field would be better since it appears that  
FRAD considers the 1xx to be a display form for humans. An 0xx might  
be a better representative of the "real world object" (RWO -- I had to  
look up that acronym, not having seen it before) that is the focus of  
the authority record, rather than associating the URI with a form of  
display. Of course, in theory the authority record's ID is the  
identifier for the representation of the RWO, although it isn't in URI  
form.
