My opinion is that modifying a record ONLY by deleting a period at the
end of the 1XX is too much trouble, and that's why the statement in Z1
is written as it is.

The Descriptive Cataloging Manual Z1 pages say "When modifying an
authority record for another reason, delete any final mark of
in the 1XX ..."
In fact, I've ONLY ever done this when I was modifying the record for
another reason, never just to delete the period.
What is your opinion of modifying a record for that reason ONLY, in
words, deleting the period at the end of the 1XX when no other changes
