There exist content objects that I would like to have
in my TEI file that are neither part of the original
work being encoded per se, nor are really part of the
"metadata" that is the <teiHeader>, either.
- the <castList> of a drama if no cast list appeared in
- the keyed list of names that occur in the document
- <timeline> elements
- <linkGrp> or <joinGrp> elements
- <note> elements (other than those in the <notesStmt>)
one chooses not to encode in-line or in-place.
These elements belong inside the main <TEI.2> element,
but do not belong inside the <teiHeader> or the
<front>, <body>, or <back> elements. It is arguable
whether they belong inside the <text> element or outside.
This suggestion is for an element (called <hyperDiv>;
the name <ldb> has also been suggsted, for "link data
block"; alternatively, it might just be an <ab>,
although that would make appropriate constraints
difficult or impossible) which would occur as an
optional single child of <text> before <front>, whose
express purpose would be to hold this sort of thing.
 Were a project to decide to make key= of <name> an
or XPointer, so that it could point to a database
in the same instance.
 By "in-line" I mean the standard OHCO method of
<note>s at their anchor point in the text. By
I mean encoding a note where it appeared on the source
