I could have sworn that while in Paris Lou made an edit right while we 
were sitting there to change some instance of <idno type="ISSN"> to 
<idno type="issn"> because we thought that was consistent with preferred 
practice.  But based on Martin's list, perhaps it was the other way 
around ("issn" to "ISSN").

I don't have an opinion on this question, but whatever we agree on, it 
should be added to
