When all elements are lacking, and there's no RDA provision, I suppose
you can for the time being at least, go back to AACR:
Just use: S.L. : s.n., n.d. 
Until no mixed record or coding is allowed, or a 264 5 should come

RDA 1.3 (for the core elements) – include the elements only if they
“are applicable and readily ascertainable.”
For these publisher-related elements though RDA does indicate the use
of the “… not identified” placeholders. These signal at a minimum that
the resource can be determined as being published but the place and name
of publisher cannot be determined. The distribution and manufacturing
data is triggered as core in the absence of identified publisher
information, so that at least some useful identifying information must
be recorded if applicable and readily ascertainable for published
New to RDA is the split of the AACR2’s date of manufacture into two
elements. The date of manufacture of an unpublished (i.e. one-of-a-kind,
not distributed, etc.) resource is now Date of Production. Two new
elements responding to archives and museum needs have been added to the
Production Statement and these are: Place of Production and Producer’s
Name (these are not core elements). AACR2 1.4C8 and 1.4D8 prohibited
recording the place and name of a producer for unpublished resources,
and recycled the date of manufacture as the date for the production of
an unpublished resource. RDA takes AACR2’s division of published vs
unpublished resources and crafts a new element, Production Statement,
out of that.

Hi all,

Given that RDA seems to have a hierarchy for publication, etc.,
information--take publication first, distribution if that is absent, and
manufacture if distribution is also not present--what do we do if none
of these are present and nothing can be supplied from outside the
resource? It seems that the rules and the PCC policy statements are
quiet on this possibility.
