I think that in the SRW model, which is even more single database oriented
than Z39.50, this is the way it should be done. Even if at the back end
you throw it back to the same RDBMS tables, the SRW side of things should
IMO look like a separate database.
I've thrown up a UNESCO database in SRW using ZThes, next week I'll put up
a quick DB which has links to it to show what I mean.
