I'm slogging away at combining the outputs from Matthew's
personographical worktaskforcegroupactivity with CC and ND (look em up)
and have a few unresolved issues on which guidance from the Council
would be welcomed.
1. CC defines both <person> and <personGrp> as potential members of
<listPerson>. A <personGrp> is a "multi-headed" person treated as a
single individual, for example "the audience" , "a howling mob" etc. It
seems to me to make sense to treat <personGrp> in exactly the same way
as <person> therefore, but it was not proposed in persw06. Anyone object
if I add it? It is definitely needed for spoken corpus work and I would
have thought useful in other situations too.
2. I'd like to rename "particLinks" (the current wrapper for <relation>
elements) as <personLinks>. All in favour? I'd also like to rename
"relation" but still haven't thought of a better name. (The P5 source
contains a note indicating that I've been trying to do so since at least
1994, so I don't suppose I'm likely to )
3. In Kyoto we discussed briefly where <listPerson> should be
permitted. There was a feeling that it ought to be permitted inside the
body of a text, to which end it was moved into the class model.biblLike.
However, it is also a member of the model.profileDescPart class, along
with <particDesc>, <settingDesc> etc. This means you can have a
<listPerson> either directly within a <profileDesc> or within a
<particDesc> inside a <profileDesc> which seems silly. I propose to
remove its membership from model.profileDescPart.
