I think we do need them in order to reference older, unconverted MARC
records that may exist. While there is a (I presume) a desire to get rid
of individual MARC records, the fact of the matter is we will need to
support these for the foreseeable future. I think this is especially
true for vendors like EBSCO where we may want to integrate existing
catalogs with more recent linked data. (Though it must be said I am not
speaking for EP in this forum.)
