Another idea:

  * Teaching catalogers how to move from a "records" mental model to a
    "graph" mental model of interrelated statements.  This requires
    a fundamental shift of perspective that bundles up other
    related issues, among them that text labels for identifiers
    are not good enough.

This is possibly tangential to our charge, but I think our report needs to stake out some territory here for further development because there is a huge group of library professionals that are still trying to figure out how to shoehorn linked data in to the MARC record structure.
