A question, rather than a comment:

There are numbers of competent cataloguers whose institutions are not PCC
members and/or do not participate in BIBCO.  

How can they denote that they are following BSRs (in any format) in records
they create, which will eventually (like ours) end up in OCLC and other
databases?  Something for 040 $e or maybe 042?  In the past they could use
"4" in Ldr/17 (Encoding level) to indicate they were applying Core Record
standards.  Do we need a new MARC code?
