As a general rule of thumb, Anthony's suggestion might work for the sort of
problem Elizabeth brings up, that is, the concise identification of
relationships and other data that would be useful to the public regarding a
heading. Some of this information comes through research (sometimes quite
involved) on the part of the cataloger, which the citation of a single
source or two cannot convey. Can you see 670s like this ...

670 Personal communication from E.A. Robinson, 3 Feb. 2000 $b (Jane Johnson
is  the widow of Johnson, John, d. 1730, printer in Berwick)

... in which the cataloger has "communicated" with herself?

As a purely personal matter of opinion, and not at all reflecting the
position of the Library of Congress on this matter, I will share with you
the thought that struck me this morning, in the shower:

If information is relevant to the heading, it goes into a 670 field; if
it's not relevant to the heading, it goes into a 675 field.

To paraphrase Judy Kuhagen speaking about another NAR-related matter,
introducing yet another field and set of tagging into NAR production is
not cataloging simplification.
