I'm broadening the previous topic a bit because our local system just failed to load some updated geographic authority records... Michigan, North Carolina, etc. because of a new linking field in the authority format.
I looked at the MARC documentation but I do not see a practical use for the 751 so I'm wondering why I should bother with all the work of now manually replacing these records. I'm also wondering why I haven't seen discussion.
If there is a practical reason, would someone share that with me? Point me to discussion?

This was discussed in May at the BIBCO and CONSER Operations Committees
meeting. I raised a number of concerns about all the options and the
implications for authority records and particularly for those of us who
are using network level catalogs like WorldCat Local.
