I think the use of "3" or "1" depends on whether or not the parallel title
is recorded also in 245.  If the parallel title is appearing ONLY in 246,
then the indicator MUST be "1", else the title will not display to the user
when viewing the record.  (That is, if the catalog is set up to handle the
MARC format as it's defined...)
