I don't think the discussion has gone so far off the rails, but thanks
for pointing this out. I think people are gaining something out of it.
After looking at the report it seems as if the events wanted are
primarily for individual audio/video performances of various types, so
the other types of events I discussed are of less importance for this
In this particular case, this makes the entire issue much easier than
what I had discussed. Since library catalogs do not currently encode
this type of performance information, it becomes a case of a "blank
slate". Therefore, Bibframe should be free to reuse any other
event/performance types of RDF that already exists, and there seem to be
some out there now to choose from. This is normal and shows an advantage
of linked data and how it should be done, for all of the reasons
mentioned in the talk pointed out by Martynas.
It makes much more sense in all kinds of ways to use other standards
when they exist, and if those standards need to be supplemented in some
ways, that can be done through additions to your own name space.
The issue of whether catalogers should encode this type of performance
information is beyond the scope of Bibframe and enters the area of user
needs, cataloging rules, management, staffing, training, etc. etc.
