I think the idea of a new SIG focusing on the description of other
supports bearing text is a good one and I think we all agree that msDesc
needs to be refined/expanded.
I also wanted to add something about what you say below:

The SIG ontologies is working on the former (mapping TEI to CIDOC-CRM
and viceversa and providing recommendations on how to integrate the
two). FRBR was also a possible focus of this SIG, but I don't know
whether it is realistic to deal with that at this stage.
