That 667 field was added to any NAR with a 100 $c, that wasn’t on a list of valid RDA qualifiers that a Task Group I participated in could agree in fairly short order. An awful lot of perfectly good RDA qualifiers weren’t on that list – if anyone had the slightest doubt about a qualifier, or thought the facts might need looking at again, it was left off. Some qualifiers just need punctuation changing. Much of this was due to be done in the now mythical Phase 3B LC/NAF RDA conversion. I agree the current example is probably fine.

That 667 field was added to any authority record with a subfield $c in the 100. It doesn't necessarily mean that the heading is not a valid RDA heading.
The examples in 9.4 are used as additions to the preferred name. See 22.214.171.124.1. The heading for the princess is probably OK as it is.

Subject: [PCCLIST] NARs for princesses
I turn to the collective wisdom for help with a NAR for a Duchess of York, Frederica Charlotte of Prussia. I find the RDA rules for royals (see 9.4 and 126.96.36.199) to be extremely hard to parse. She’s a royal both by birth and by marriage (daughter of a king and wife of a king’s son). She also doesn’t have a last name in any real sense and the examples in 188.8.131.52 all involve people with last names. The examples at 9.4 only show the title and don’t show the whole preferred name.
There is currently a NAR in the NAF, but it has a 667 THIS 1XX FIELD CANNOT BE USED UNDER RDA UNTIL THIS RECORD HAS BEEN REVIEWED AND/OR UPDATED and I want to do the right thing and clean up the record while I am looking at it.
Frederica Charlotte Ulrica Catherina, ǂc Princess, Duchess of York, ǂd 1767-1820
