    I have a number of editorial suggestions, which fall into two categories:
    * Identifying general comments that get repeated a few times (like the footnote page breaks)
    * Rewording to remove the “I” comments. These should be generalized either to “we” (the task force) or to catalogers in general.

    I have shared the edited version with the task force.

    This seems a thorough response. Here are a few comments:

    Page 4. II.1 last paragraph:
    This sentence is not correct. Should “in” be removed?
    “I think in this paragraph should state that FRBR/RDA vocabulary is used.”

    Page 5. Is this sentence correct?
    “On the other hand, if this *is* what is meant (see 1F2), then it needs to be clearer that 0G6.1 that the interpolation in the transcription does not apply in cases like 0G6.1, e.g.:”
    Should it be instead: “On the other hand, if this *is* what is meant (see 1F2), then it needs to be clearer that 0G6.1 that the interpolation in the transcription does not apply in cases like 0G6.1, e.g.:”

    English is not my first language, but I saw a couple “which” that might be grammatically more correct if changed to “that”:

    p. 4: X.1.4 (p. 24) footnote 4: “… In addition, the “all subject headings” statement in the footnote seems to exclude many music subject headings which are governed by pattern headings and are not officially established in the authority file.”

    p. 7: 0G9, second paragraph: “Either way, we suggest including an example which preserves the superscript/subscript in transcription…”

    This is also a problem in the DCRM(M) text.

    p. 18 Options: “Alternative rule designates an alternative option which affects all or several areas of the description, and which must be used consistently throughout.”
    p. 120: 5B13.2. If the number of physical units in which resource is bound differs from the number which was actually issued or created, state this fact in a local note, if considered important (see 7B21.3.2). “
    p. 139: “Make notes on vocal texts which are separate from the music.”
