I agree ! I have had similar thoughts about <add> and <addSpan>. One
example is that of an addition to a title page (Syd, I am thinking here
of, for example, the file APPEAR WWPPRF06 on the disk DAVIES).
In this example, Lady Eleanor has added a whole lot of writing to her
printed manuscript's title page, but has not added this *only* to a
specific piece of the title page (i.e. <add> would be sufficient and
allowable by the DTD as a child of one of the title page's children,
such as <titlePart>). Her writing looks as if it is an addition to the
title Page as a *whole*.
Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think <addSpan> is
allowable on a title page, is it? Or worse (and this is fairly likely
to occur in at least one of the Lady Eleanor Davies' many tracts),
what about added handwritten stuff that spans both the title page and
part of the succeeding page(s) ?
This particular example is of course made more confusing by the
profusion of <gap>, <damage>, <supplied>, and especially <unclear> tags
that are the Lady Eleanor Davies' crazed and ubiquitous hallmark. ;-)
