So what would that look like in this list? The below don't seem to map
well to the current list.
When Karen had originally suggested this, it came out of my query,
IIRC, about congressional hearings and government reports.
Also, what about adding "academic journal" now that we'll have the part
element with its ability to code journal articles? If this is the
case, it suggests to me the genre for articles and such ought to be
coded on the "host." Sound right?
