There may indeed be, in which case there is a case for treating the
cemetery as a sibling to the individual gravestones. But what if that's
_not_ the case? What if there are graphical representations of a whole
which is unambiguously the parent of the component <TEI>s?
The example of a "boxed set" of novels comes to mind. The box would
merit its own images and metadata, but it's categorically the container
of the novels. Wouldn't that be a good case for <facsimile> in <teiCorpus>?
