"an illogical concept from the beginning"? Not really. Just more card-
talk. In the old days, you'd type "Series" at the bottom of the card if 
the tracing was the same as the description (aka 440). You'd 
type "Series: Cataloghi d'arte (Alessandria, Italy" if that's the way 
the tracing was supposed to be typed (aka 4XX/8XX).

Our description in parenthesis after the collation might have been less 
strictly transcription, allowing for "Its Bulletin no. 23" and similar 
that allowed for a simple "Series" at the bottom of the card.

It's an old tradition that doesn't make as much sense in the automated 
world with copy/paste and copy field functionality. And it really 
doesn't work in systems with linked bib/authority records.
