As discussed in a side-note to FR 443, I propose that the attribute @source be added to the att.responsibility class. This will allow the identification of a (e.g.) bibliographical source for an encoded statement anywhere that one can currently point to editorial responsibility for the encoding. We should then consider adding egXML q quote writing to this class, rather than definiting att.source separately, making the availibility of these two attributes more consistent.

One use case: apparatus criticus in documentary works often describe readings and emendations proposed in previous editions, rather than merely different manuscript witnesses or editorial responsibility for readings. It would be useful to encode this as something like:

<app loc="4">
   <lem resp="#GB">Diana<supplied>e</supplied></lem>
   <rdg source="#gasperini1965">Dianae</rdg>
</app>

    I don't think I'd ever take them together myself, but I'm uncomfortable with the idea of precluding it. As we said above, I think there is a perfectly clear semantic to an element that carries both attributes. (And if this request is implemented, I'll pretty much stop [mis]using @resp altogether...)
