I can comment on the first question.  There was a validation record for 
Sunnites--Relations--Shiah.  We wanted to make a cross-ref for a string 
that many catalogers have created that really meant the same thing: 
Sunnites--Relations--Shiites.  Because it is not possible to edit 
validation records, we made a new proposal for

150 Sunnites $x Relations $x Shiah
450 Sunnites $x Relations $x Shiites

and I asked LC to either cancel the validation record or add the 4XX to 
it.  It appears that LC decided to cancel the validation record and 
establish this heading formally with the cross-ref.  The proposal will 
appear on monthly list 4.

So Mary Charles, I think that your headings in your catalog can just be 
left alone.
