A question for the community about usage:

Where do you (in your own local usage) place, within a TEI document, a 
prosopography (listPerson) that is neither a castList nor a participants 
description (particDesc), nor a list of scribes in the manuscript etc.; 
or a gazetteer (listPlace) that is not a setting description for your 
document; or a listNym, listOrg, listEvent? In other words, if the list* 
is serving as a vocabulary or external table to your digital corpus, 
rather than a manuscript description or catalogue metadata.

My instinct is that such a list doesn't belong in the teiHeader, but 
perhaps in the tei:body or tei:back of a text, depending on the 
structure of the edition being created.

What have others chosen to do?

Thanks,

Gabby
