I think I agree with Richard. The TEI and CIDOC are not running
in parallel, they do different jobs. What the TEI must do is
relate its vocabulary to that of CIDOC, so that when someone sees
a TEI <birth>, they know that this is CIDOC 16.53 (no, thats not
real, just an example!). The TEI sources have a place for
recording this sort of information (the glorious <equiv> element),
which can also be used to relate TEI vocabulary to ISO termbanks, for example.
