Has anyone commented on the implications for music uniform titles of the 
change in LCRI 22.1? An example is the AACR2-compatible name heading 
Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Felix, $d 1809-1847 and the 554 related 
name-title headings. Would a well-publicized cooperative project be 
feasible both to identify and revise name authority records and to 
report the necessary bibliographic file maintenance? The scope of the 
revision required could become a deterrent to the establishment of a new 
name-title authority record using a currently AACR2-compatible name heading.
