“The entity person is restricted to real persons who live or are assumed to
have lived.” p. 19
This definition has been noted in some email discussions.(See below) By limiting the entity Person to real life beings questions come up to how pseudonyms and fictional persons will be handled. Dunsire‘s reply is that a single identifier will be used with display labels for the various personas of the natural person. It is fairly easy to come up with situations in which that may not work (e.g. more than one person for a persona). It also isn’t clear how the various personas will be clearly associated with individual works.
