I'm a bit late to this party but want to follow up on one point that
Jörg raises that always seems to me to be a bit of an elephant in the room:

Our institution uses RDA to catalog but then we stuff the resulting
description into MARC which is what our catalog (Voyager) supports. My
understanding is that this is lossy. BIBFRAME offers the benefits of
linked data but is based on a simpler model than RDA. So where does this
leave the community in a few years? Will some places move to adopt
divergent new models/formats as native and then crosswalk (with
associated problems, lossiness) to others for interoperability?
