Gabriele Radecke from the Fontane-Arbeitsstelle at the Georg August University in Göttingen, request a possibility to mark the type of the textual basis of the letter in CMIF. Because in the use-case of her project (Fontane's notebooks), she has just concepts of letters and cannot always verify whether these concepts were really (and unchanged) sent or not.

From my perspective in these cases the letter neither has been sent nor received. But after all it is a 'correspondence action'. So probably a <correspAction type="concept"> would be appropriate. <persName> should state the writer of the concept, while any proposed addressee is merely a person 'just' mentioned and should thus be encoded in the proposed correspDesc/note.
@evidence wouldn't be the right choice at this point as far as I understand the TEI Guidelines correctly.
