Add a new record.  The fixed fields would differ, as would the 33X media
terms.  Having one record would complicate placing holds in some ILS.

The same applied to AACR2, except that the GMD would be there for one
and not the other.

If one adds an 007 for the electronic version to the print record,
some ILS would exclude the record from a print search.
