Would it be good to broaden the description of <extent>? The description and examples make good sense when describing a file "as stored on some carrier medium". But <extent> is also used in bibliographic elements, and "as stored on some carrier medium" seems a strange way to describe, say, the number of leaves in a catalogued parchment (to use one the bibliographic examples).

Discussion

  • The element's description also doesn't fit well with uses described in 10.7.1.2 Extent.

    The same point is made in FR 3575446 which also proposes a revised wording, so I am closing this one as a duplicate,
