RE: biblScope should be in Imprint or not? (biblStruct)

Thanks, Laurent & Lou. I prefer to be consistent, so I'm going to go for keeping biblScope outside of imprint. My reasoning is that the definition of imprint (as a word, not necessarily in the TEI sense) is the bibliographic information about a publisher and the facts of publication. The page numbers or even volume information is not the same type of information.

I'm open to persuasion, of course!

Best,
Lisa

In fact, I fully agree with your argument, but I had understood that 
both examples in the initial post where of the first type. The first 
one is a paper in a journal, the second one a chapter in an edited 
book. So Lisa, keep bith views in mind!
