Presumably the end product of Bibframe (as for any coding system)
would be display of a bibliographic description to lead a patron to a
resource, regardless of any other use made of the data.

I've seen little if any discussion of display or indexing.

For example, in the labeling of variant titles, does that variant
title produce a note or only serve as an access point?  Some should
display (e.g. spine title), and some need not (e.g., a distinctive
subtitle need not mislay twice).  Would the subtitle label have an
indication that it should be a access point, or would it be entered
twice as now?  Or would all subtitles be access points regardless of
need?

Karen said that in the world of liked data, there would be no "record"
having, for example, note order.  But there would be a display, and
that display should not have random note order.  How is a consistent
order to be accomplished, if most notes are just <bf:note>?

In Bibframe examples, tags are given in ISBD order, apart from variant
titles which are given in MARC order.  How does this appear on an OPAC
screen?  Those Bibframe labels would be nonsense to patrons, and the
capitalization is strange to say the least.  Are we expecting a simple
ISBD display (ala Martha Yee*), or the substitution of more patron
friendly terms in the "languge of the catalogue"?  Would there be
standardization of labels, for skill transfer from OPAC to OPAC, or
the congising mix we now have?

MARC's greatest weakness is the failure of ILS to fully exploit it.  
How Bibframe would be utilized for patron service seems paramount to
me.
