I am currently using the "annotation" element within a book/info for any additional text on the imprint page, such as the description of photos on the front cover, and details about the type used in the book or the printer. I not that the annotation element is to be removed from the Publishers Schema. Would the Working Group consider introducing a new element (eg "imprint") for this miscellaneous information - there does not seem to be another suitable element that can be used as a child of info/.

    Would bibliomisc or bibliosource be more appropriate than annotation? Also, the publishers schema includes the full Dublin Core metadata attributes, which might also work?
