Because that's what 'immutable' (your word) means. Not changing. Not
fixing even the most trivial and obvious of mistakes.

I believe that this is exactly the wrong question.
I believe the relevant question (and the only relevant question) for
BIBFRAME is "What is the best, simplest, mapping of MARC to RDF?"
As for your comment about my 'upstream'; this whole process is about
moving away from single sources of truth to a web; from upstream and
downstream to a web information sources. If I still have an 'upstream'
once we've rolled out BIBFRAME, we may as well give up now.
