I wonder whether, in (some of?) the cases Adam cites below, the relationship would be more accurately expressed by the relatively new RDs "editorial director" and/or "founder of work".  As these are both work-level relationships, using them could resolve at least this variety of the work-to-expression conundrum.

“This is an expression to work relationship. At the moment, RDA doesn’t recognize any expression to work relationship (it’s not just confined to series) between different works. And yet such relationships do exist and are important. The RSC Relationship Designators Working Group is proposing to remedy this. We’ll see how that plays at the RSC meeting next month, and how it works out in terms later RDA revisions.”


Here’s another common situation illustrating work to expression relationships:

Each of these examples has a work access point in the 1XX and a person associated with expressions in the 5XX.
