I think that could indeed work well. But if we go
this way, then it may make more sense to use
<surface> within the documentary encoding to enclose
fragments than <zone>. I note with delight that
<surfaceGrp> can be nested, for something like
<surfaceGrp> <!-- a manuscript -->
<surfaceGrp> <!-- a folio of this manuscript -->
<surface> <!-- a fragment of this folio -->
<surface> <!-- another fragment of this folio -->

Once we settle on our encoding and it finds approval,
we would love to do so.
