Thanks, Ross. I looked at the RDA terms [1] and interestingly type of  
composition isn't one of the vocabularies that was defined in RDA. I  
don't know whether that was an oversight or not -- type of composition  
is included in the RDA rules, there's just no list to accompany it. So  
this one may end up doing double duty: MARC and RDA.
