If you discuss about FRBR long enough, works, manifestations,
expressions
and items become pretty real ;-)

Does this reflect current work at Talis on modeling/describing
bibliographic
resources?

I don't expect Talis and British Library to implement full FRBR, but I 
wonder about the lack of any concept of holdings, items, copies etc. 
compared to at least editions. Do the central URIs in the BL model 
represent physical books? What about books with two or more 
copies in the BL - two unrelated URIs? Are there no relations 
between multiple editions of the same book?
