The collision here is with the more common association of “arrangement” with music. Musical Work X is an arrangement of Musical Work Y. Musical Work Y is an Arrangement. This rather useful and good relationship has been shoved in bflc for a while now, but really needs to be elevated to the main ontology because it is a readily derivable relationship and a good one. The problem here is that we risk having very similarly named properties in the vocabulary with the stronger property– bf:arrangement – referring to a rather uncommon concept (when compared to that of a musical arrangement).
The property bf:organization - https://id.loc.gov/ontologies/bibframe-2-0-1.html#p_organization – is the organization of resources within a bf:Arrangement, but it has the unfortunate collision with the class bf:Organization, which means something entirely different. bf:organization also breaks a wider pattern in the Ontology
And so on….
Which is to say that this pattern does not hold (and wouldn’t make sense):
Yet, on the surface, you couldn’t blame anyone for thinking that that was a viable pattern just by reviewing the names of BF properties and classes. That person is in for a surprise.
The existing properties and the class are not used anywhere at this time. LC has not incorporated them into any profiles nor has Sinopia (per email communication with Nancy Lorimer). At LC, a scan of the MARC stats reveals that there are 3,595 MARC bib records using the 351 field. Such a small number comes nowhere close to even qualifying as a rounding error out of 22M bib records.
