Unril/unless we have actual work records (as in Bibframe's
Work/Instance), we are creating manifestation records, and shall
contine the thesis vs. commericially published thesis text distinction
as at present.  We are hampered by the loss of 503 in doing so.

I wonder how much difference from the original thesis would cause the
commerically published version to be a different work in Bibframe?  
There are sometimes major differences, and often at least a preface or
introduction added.
