create a specialized <listEvent> element (parallel to <listPerson> and <listPlace>) for listing and describing historical events. Currently <event> can only be used in relation to people or places, but there are instances where events will need to be noted on their own and linked to externally.

<listEvent>
<event xml:id="event01">
<head>Barbourville</head>
<desc>Civil War battle in <placeName>Knox County,
Kentucky</placeName></desc>
</event>
<event xml:id="event02">
<head>Camp Wild Cat</head>
<desc>Civil War battle in <placeName>Laurel County,
Kentucky</placeName></desc>
</event>
<event xml:id="event03">
<head>Cynthiana</head>
<desc>Civil War battle in <placeName>Harrison County,
Kentucky</placeName></desc>
</event>
</listEvent>

    This seems reasonable to me, see also discussion on TEI-L http://listserv.brown.edu/archives/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind0808&L=TEI-L&T=0&F=&S=&P=761

    While it is true that events usually happen to places or people, we should allow for someone wishing to organise metadata the other way round, i.e. a list of events which have a placeName linked to a place record elsewhere. That way I could define a list of events which reference your standard list of placenames without the need for duplication of place elements.

    Suggesting this get moved to status 'Amber' for more discussion.

    I think this is a good proposal, and it is in line with things discussed in the Ontologies SIG as well as with our paper at the Digital Humanities conference in June this year (Ore, C.E. and Eide, Ø.: TEI and cultural heritage ontologies).
