Karen, I generally agree with this summary but would amend it slightly.
 Instead of:

"You code an mp3 as a song, not as a file."

I'd say:

"You code an mp3 /first/ as a song and then as a file.  Then link the file
resource to the song resource (but probably not the other way around)."

The actual mp3 attributes are important (bitrate, location, rights, etc.),
but most people care about the song rather than the file.  I'm much more
concerned (at first) with the scope of your music collection, rather than
the size of disk space it consumes, for example.

That said, I'm not sure how this applies to subject headings -- I am
actually not sure of the difference between the concept and the label, does
a heading that gets a new label keep the same LCCN?
