Karen Coyle had mentioned one coding (I forget which) where you have
something like 2003-44. That's an option, but there's no way to
indicate this encoding currently.
In any case, I guess this raises two questions:
1) Is there any clever way to code this in MODS now? I was thinking
2) Could MODS use a minor change here or there (for example, an
additional data encoding option?)?
