Ryan,

From the PCC home page:

Under RDA and PCC: click RDA Guidelines and Standards.  Then the link to 
it is labeled Relationship designators in bibliographic records under the 
section PCC RDA Bibliographic Description.  I agree that finding this is 
not necessarily that easy.

Unfortunately (in my opinion), this designator was changed last month to ?container of (expression)?. And since it was added as a fast-track change there isn?t even any history showing what it used to be.

However, there is unfortunately no choice if anybody wants to bring out this relationship in an authority record so I guess I?ll have to grit my teeth and use it there. (This isn?t the only 2014 change in the relationship designators that seems bizarre to me.)

Further questions remain as to (1) whether subfield i was omitted from these fields as an option decision or as a matter of policy, and (2) where the phrase "contains (expression)" is documented.

If like me you have only one volume in hand, you might wind up deleting fields that should remain in the master record.  And if you then replace the master record, you'll degrade the quality of the cataloging.  Anyone wishing to describe just volume  1 can use OCLC 9789042927520; for volume 2, 853444030 is available.  Both can use a little further work.
