It is up to you to decide how many authors you wish to mention in the statement of responsibility

Subject: [PCCLIST] "Main access point" for more than three authors
Another question from the tip of Africa please! I know that the AACR2 "Rule of 3" does not apply any more, but I have a problem with choosing the "main access point" (which we use to build our shelf number) when there are three or more authors. We decided to use [and others]when there are more than three authors (should we use it for three also??) and wonder if the person mentioned before the [and others] is a 100 or a 700 access point. In AACR2 it would have been a 700, but in RDA? Editors are no problem because they are 700s, right?
Thanks for your help and opinions.
