Looking at this from the bibliographic/library world I would be inclined to
support this too as it would enable better support for collections, series,
and multi-part works.

However, CollectionPage is a bit restrictive - I was hoping that there was a
generic CreativeWork/Collection to relate to.  I would have thought this
would also make more sense for the LMRI community.

I can understand your reticence, but surely one of the prime properties of a
collection is its part(s).
