Does the Library of Congress have a plan for where you are willing to let
MODS go? Right now, the conversations feel like it is quickly going to get
as convoluted as anything MARBI did, with none of the "process" of a MARBI
I don't want to stop the conversations. It may well be that we quickly
converge on a reasonable compromise between expressiveness and complexity.
But, at some point we are going to have to say that some direction is
"excessive" and it would be helpful if there was some design philosophy
underlying the work to help guide that decision.
