It would not be a major change to add a relatedItem type "referencedBy" or
"isReferencedBy" or whatever we want to call it. In this new version 3.0
we are adding a few other related Item types that weren't covered by MODS.
Since there is a MARC equivalent as well, this would probably be useful.
As in a MARC record, one would assume that any list of sources where the
resource is cited may not be comprehensive, since you in most cases
wouldn't want to go back and update the record each time.

Would this be sufficient?

FYI: we plan to finalize this version this week. Yes, I know I keep saying
this and then something else comes up. We are just testing to see if we
can do the global subelements easily without major changes to the schema
or whether that will need to wait until a later version.
