Right. Hence my following comment that we should make it clear that
_unless otherwise assigned_ CQL is the CQL set, and shouldn't generate an
unknown context set diagnostic.

Yes, a separate discussion. The connection being that if you have to
explicitly say that you support the CQL set, then to be consistent, we
should explicitly say that we support the DC schema, even though support
for it is mandatory.
Especially as it makes generating interfaces from the ZeeRex more
consistent (do I add a DC schema or is it already listed check)
On the other hand, we shouldn't have the Diagnostic schema or ZeeRex
listed, as those are required for protocol reasons, rather than
minimum level interoperability reasons. Right?

(Yes! That was ... troublesome ... though debacle is probably too strong)
Last time I offered, we decided to just leave it with me. But I'm
still quite happy to have Net and Rec live on the LC site, with a loc.gov
A 'credits' page might then attribute them (and/or the rest of the
documentation writing) back to me, but I'm not concerned. (The University
on the other hand likes publications, which was my only reason for not
insisting that they be core sets last time round, I admit)
