for our biographical lexicon we would like to add information where the particular datum came from, e.g. the date or place of birth or death and many others. This source is usu. a bibliographic item (e.g. some other bio lexicon), but also things like "verified" etc.
A couple of problems cropped up:
I thought we'd use a taxonomy for the possible sources, and @resp to point to one of them, e.g.
<bibl><title>Primorski slovenski biografski leksikon</title></bibl>
<date resp="#psbl" when="1835-04-19"/>
is quite firm in that @resp "is associated with a person" - so, is pointing to bibliographic items abusive? But if not @resp, how should we encode the source of the datum?
Assuming we would use @resp, it turns out it is not defined on genName and roleName - is there any particular reason for this, or just an oversight?
Also, it does seem to be defined on personGrp even though the Guidelines (link above) don't show this.
Thanks for any help!
