One set of details that is potentially rather important is the lack of
common super-property that covers everyone who had something important to
do with the creation of the work.

At the moment there are several properties, that cover several "roles"; the
lack of any rdfs:subPropertyOf assertions  can lead to problems when
searching.  This lack can be made up for by adding domain specific
intelligence to all consumers of the data, or in some cases by falling back
to full text search, but is not ideal.

For example, user testing of *Scherzo*  at Indiana University
revealed problems when names were not listed in the expected role:

Additionally, the  first task for Scherzo involved searching for
Herbie Hancock’s

> Herbie Hancock was not indicated as a performer on the album but as  a
> producer,  a  fact which makes his name part of a list of “other
>  contributors”  in Scherzo and not
> actually indexed as a name associated with that album.
