Hi Lou,

Yes, it's 2976715. The discussion we had is more or less covered by the 
comments. We all agree on the need for <distributor>, <principal>,
<funder> and <sponsor> to be available in <analytic>, <monogr> and 
<series>, and the cleanest way to do that seems to us to be adding 
<distributor> to model.respLike, and then replacing explicit references 
to <author>, <editor> and <respStmt> with references to model.respLike. 
Kevin also believes that model.respLike needs some work, but that's 
beyond the scope of this ticket, and would almost certainly involve 
breaking backward compatibility, so we've stuck with a recommendation 
that solves the immediate problem and gives us a better starting point 
for later work on model.respLike, should that be necessary.

I'd have to go back through a lot of email to compile an extra summary, 
but I don't think you'd see anything that would convince you. I think 
you just disagree with us on this, and it should go to a vote.

It was my mistake typing "LB" instead of "LR", but there doesn't seem to 
be any way to edit a comment on SF, so there was nothing I could do to 
fix it -- does anyone know a way to do that?
