As far as I know, there isn't an easy way to do this.  But it never hurts to
ask, right?

Past encoding practices at my institution inserted a false c0 layer in EAD
finding aids.  For example,


My understanding correct EAD encoding:

   - c1 - Series
   - c2 - Subseries
   - c3 - File

OR

   - c1 - Series
   - c2 - File


Past practices at my institution:


   - c1 - Series
   - c2 - Subseries
   - c3 - False layer to enclose files
   - c4 - File

OR

   - c1 - Series
   - c2 - False layer
   - c3 - File


Other than hand-coding, is there a way to promote the c4s to c3s and
eliminate the false level?  I haven't used Archivist Toolkit or many other
collection management software packages that might have this functionality.

Thanks!
