I was looking through the XOBIS schema* (which bears similarities to
the FRBR), and note it distinguishes between three kinds of places:

Hrm. An interesting idea. It'd be trivial to add this to the
LibDB schema (and, in fact, I've written a few grandiose schemes
for "places" in a CCQ article I never finished - I envisioned
mapping data such that you'd be able to say "find me media
that mentions places within 30 miles of [this one]").
Do you know the exact definitions of the above? Is the Narnia
forest, certainly "natural", fictionally "constructed"?

Worth reading in its entirety, but the opening fragment is:
The Place element encompasses both physical geography (astronomical and
terrestrial locations, including their topographic and structural
features) and political geography (geopolitical jurisdictions of
governments). The emphasis is on the name of an area and/or its
government, which may change. Currently, Place has a required 'role'
attribute with values of authority, instance, or authority/instance. It
also has an optional 'type' attribute with values:natural, constructed,
or jurisdictional. It may also have a 'usage' attribute with the single
value of subdivision, to indicate suitability as a value of Subdivision
in Relationships. Its Entry has an optional 'class' attribute with
values:individual, collective, or referential, as well as 'language'
and 'transliteration', and may have a 'scheme' attribute.
