It *would* be nice to have UKMARC's 248 for constituent titles,
leaving 740 as related works, also allowing direct access by title as
opposed to 700$a$t.

Our customers prefer the 440/8XX approach, since all their ILS's can
handle that, they sometimes do not have the master record for the 7XX
linking fields to link to, as well as many ILS's making a mess of
using them.
