Professor Kiesling,

In my opinion, EAD is rather complicated.  I think that this is
because at first it was trying to meet too many demands, inherited
from MARC, which would be lovely to have but are too much for a
general system.  Doubtless Panorama and such can handle the
complexities, but we should have simplicities on the Internet.

May I suggest that the efficiency of search engines may overtake the
categories we create and make them redundant?
