This page - http://archive.ifla.org/VII/s13/frbr/frbr_current_toc.htm - which is basically the landing page for the *entire* report would be an Instance of that Work. However, the page you direct to in your question is not the same as the link I provided. Your link is to a distinct chapter of that Work. One option for the model would be to create a BIBFRAME Work resource for the chapter, which, being a BIBFRAME Work, would have an Instance (represented by your link). There would be a defined relationship between the BIBFRAME Work for the entire report to the BIBFRAME Work for Chapter 3. We've been experimenting with this idea.

I'm confused - where does Kevin say that the chapter is only a Work when carried by a particular carrier?
The idea that chapters should be regarded as Works in their own right (if someone is interested in cataloguing to that level) makes sense to me.
