I would rather add the name to an undifferentiated record than come up
with a |c. For one thing, the field of endeavor can change. Have a look
at the NAR for Warfield, Gerald, who has composed music, and written on
(at least) music theory, feng shui, and investing.

I think we have all (LC catalogers included) been extending/bending what

the 22.19 and its LCRI says about what can be used in $c to break 
conflicts.  You will find numerous terms added to post-19th century
that are clearly a violation of 22.19 and its LCRI (e.g., actor,
lawyer, physician).  Technically, I would say that "dancer", "ballet 
dancer" and the like are going beyond what we are allowed by the AACR2 
rule and LCRI to do.  However, RDA will allow the addition of an 
occupation/profession or field of activity to break conflicts, so I
really feel that adding these kinds of terms now is so bad.  However, if

you want to follow the letter of the law so to speak, you can't add
kinds of terms to AACR2 names for post-19th century persons.

I favor this extension of the category to include other musical arts,
but I'm wondering whether there is any clear guidance allowing or
disallowing it.
