Thanks.  I am, but have been filing everything in folders recently.  I'll add this (at the bottom) to my list of what we need MLA to do as special projects, though Mendelssohn surely isn't the only person to be caught up by preferred form of name per RDA.

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.
