There's an argument to be made that the part content is more about a
relation between a work and its host, than something intrinsic to the
relatedItem (as it is now).  So how are you planning to code these
records in MODS (if you make part global, that is)?

I'm curious about it myself.  For example, I may want store a hundred
journal articles from a single journal.  So, that journal really ought
to have a single MODS record it seems.  But then how to code the
individual articles and link to that record?
