I would assume that the "rule makers" are refers to  the LC Policy and Standards Division (PSD) [ formerly known as CPSO], which is a subunit of under the Acquisitions and Bibliographic Access Directorate (ABA) , which is under Library Services (LS):  

PSD BTP ABA BTP LS

BIBFRAME was mostly  developed under the Network Development and MARC Standards Office (NDMSO), which is a subunit of the Technology Policy Directorate (TPD), which is also under Library Services (LS); 

NDMSO BTP TPD BTP LS 

It is possible that the committee memberships listed for the various bibframe sub-committees are misleading, but there seemed to be very few members from PSD.

I'm a little confused-- who are "the rule makers" to whom you are referring?

> Phil and A.,  I agree that the investigation would be very useful and interesting, but you have to have it with the folks who make the rules.  Too often we (or at least I) assume something is not important or useless or whatever until I consult the rule makers, who have given thought to many things (of course they are not perfect either:)).
