Ray -- if I had one comment, it would be that you clarify what you
mean by "bibliographic". Who is your audience?
Right now, the context set is heavily-burdened by library traditions.
In my world. the average person never thinks in terms like
"titleUniform" or "namePersonal" and so forth. Indeed, if I search on
"bib.namePersonal" I would expect to be geting back a record for the
person, but I don't think that's the intention.
So if this aimed at libraries (as I think it is), then you should
narrow the scope.
