Ray,
By proposing such extensions to the bib-1 attribute set, you are negating
all the work that has been done on the development of the new attribute
architecture and the bib-2 attribute set.  

I note that in the recently released specs for an IMS Digital Repositories
Interoperability specification  http://www.imsglobal.org, there are
guidelines for the use of Z39.50 and a proposal for an extensive extension
of bib-1 for IMS Meta-Data.  Why not take the opportunity to use the new
attribute architecture there? 

At previous meetings of ZIG, participants discouraged the addition of
attributes to bib-1 because it would encourage the continued use of bib-1 .
Are these discussions being forgotten?  Is all the work that went into the
development of the new more logical architecture all for naught?
