   Turn that around.  Bibco catalogers would simply not recognize the 
concept of "local headings", since they can supply accurate information to 
all the libraries in the world in one swell foop (saving all expensive 
efforts).  In the world of online data, there is no "local" anymore. 
Even many "local" catalogs are online, so some degree of uniformity is 
certainly preferable.

Cheers!
