There's always <odd> - Other Descriptive Data. It's pretty vague, but since
what you have doesn't really fit anywhere else, that might be the best choice.
It need not go up at the top unless the events apply to the entire collection.
For a list of events that apply to a single item you can put it in a odd at the
appropriate c0# level. For example, say you have a collection of classic
children's books. You could do this:
<unittitle>Wizard of Oz</unittitle>
<head>Publication and adaptation history</head>
