Since we don't outsource our authority work and I'm the only one who loads authority records and works at flipping headings, authorities are already an insurmountable problem for me - I think I'm beyond worrying about RDA data in authority records, at least as far as my own work goes. I was a bit shocked to learn that there's at least one system out there that can't handle having the 700 fields in authority records, and at least one system that can't flip headings if they have subfields not present in the authority record.
