Are these groupings of Cicero's works definitively established by tradition, or are there cases where a work might be contained in both groups, or where its inclusion in a group would be disputed? The Bible's Old Testament and New Testament are less definitively defined as groups in RDA than they were under AACR2. Is something similar the case for these groupings of Cicero's works?

Cicero’s works are traditionally so grouped. The NARs could be improved by clarifying which works are included in each group (listing them in a 677/678 and/or recording 500 “container of (work)” relationships), but in my opinion they are fine in RDA.

I am/was working on AAPs for Cicero's works.  For some I had created a larger expression, Works. Sellections or Essays. Selections.

But now I see AACR2 AAPs:

Cicero. Philosophical works

Cicero. Rhetorical works

These have not been reviewed; dont see a 667 field.  Are these still valid in RDA?  Or they be more properly brought into line with RDA.
