Well, I didn't give it a really thorough reading...but the thing I had the biggest problem with in the report, the suspension of RDA, clearly LC is not going to go along with, so I'm ok with the response.

I certainly think RDA seems to have problems, and I don't know that it will be perfect, or the right answer, but I think that it is definitely still worth pursuing.

I agree. I'm behind continued RDA development also. Now that I'm working with mostly non-MARC formats (I'm only working on one project that's using MARCXML and MARC 21) the need for a new content standard is very apparent to me. I have to say that I love AACR2 and I'm sure I'll refer back to it as a reference. AACR2 has a coherent structure and logic to it. I have a particular fondness for my dogeared library school copy of the 1988 revision with penciled in LCRI rule numbers!
