Adding a little more... The RDA elements Netanel mentions, which come from chapters 19-22, are applied as designators due to MARC having no other means to reflect that specific relationship in another way. For instance, there's no MARC tag for "publisher" that holds an access point for the publisher. So we use a generic 700, 710, or 711 (added name entry) along with a $e or $j.
