[tei-council] Tite ticket - pb at facs

This one (@facs on <pb/>) I must admit I have reservations about. We've 
previously had discussions on TEI-L which led to the determination that 
the purpose of @facs is to link an element which constitutes 
_transcription_ specifically to a <zone> or a <surface> which has the 
image of that transcription. Conal, the main begetter of the facsimile 
module, argued this very strongly, and as a result I changed the 
behaviour of the Image Markup Tool to conform with this view. In that 
discussion, @corresp was identified as the mechanism for more generic 
linking (which I think would include the linking of <pb/> to a page-image).

I'm surprised to see that the current version of the Guidelines has a 
much more permissive interpretation of the purpose of @facs, though. 
Does anyone remember how we got here from that original discussion?
