I would argue that it already "doesn't matter" that different finding aids have the same intellectual level encoded at different <c0x> levels. The Online Archive of California stylesheets, for example, simply don't specify particular numbered <c>s to effect display of specific intellectual levels. That's what the LEVEL attribute is for in a <c0x>
(e.g., <c02 "level"=subseries>).
