This is not actually a change to MODS, but to the list of controlled
values at: http://www.loc.gov/marc/sourcecode/form/formlist.html 

That list is a subset of those from the values in 008/23 and 008/29 (maps
and visual materials. We can certainly add large print, especially since
it's on the MARC list. We will do that.
