I hadn't noticed that--and it wasn't my addition to the AR.  But apparently some do make an occupation out of it:

Looking at the 374, I'm wondering how someone makes an occupation out of being a conscientious objector.

This is a recurring problem in the NAF, where dates are added to a name even though there is no need to do so under current policies.  That can cause unnecessary bib maintenance, but on the other hand, unqualified personal names can be a real pain in authority control as well.


The changes to Arnold seem to have been sparked when Arnold, M. ǂq (Malcolm) was established.  It had a 400 which was creating a conflict.  LC resolved that conflict in the standard way by adding an occupation, so now the composer doesn’t need the dates in the heading.

The 100 field heading for Malcolm Arnold (n  79140955) has seen its $d come and go over the past few weeks.  Will there be a final decision on the matter, considering there are plenty of name-title headings that may or may not need attention as well?
