Yes, I have not seen this issue discussed either. Just as important,
especially in today's rather crazy environment is: who will *own* the
work/expression information? If not made clear, a library could lose all
of its headings! and be left only with the manifestation (or ISBD
areas). Naturally, that would be a complete disaster for any library.
It would be highly irresponsible for a library to assume that such vital
information would forever be in the public domain. That must be ensured
legally by all means available.
