Informative display *creates* functionlity if the function of the
record is to assist access.  What good does it do to have a record
which systems folk can play with, it it does not assist patrons in
finding library resources?
 
What I want to do is to create bibliogrphic records our clients are
willing to pay for.

Our library clients would not be happy with:

Smith, John,$cPhotographer,$eohotographer

Nor would they be happy with a record which does not tell them the
jurisdiction of publication.

It seems to me RDA and Bibframe creators want to live in an English
language silo.  That doesn't work in Quebed, Europe, or Asia, where
some of our clients are to be found.
