Just to reply to a couple of your questions in the first instance:

As I just said in my previous email, I think we see providing extra access 
points and transcribing all authors as a positive thing (particularly to 
those authors who weren't named first in a work with 4 or more authors!) 
though I do have some concerns about the extra authority work involved.

You are right that copyright date is not *required* unless there is a date 
of publication. However, people are free to include it if they want to as 
it is a separate element in its own right. There was some discussion of 
this yesterday too, since during the US NAtional Test, Library of Congress 
was saying to include copyright date no matter what, so people have become 
accustomed to seeing that in RDA records. It's now not required unless the 
date of publication & manufacture are missing, but I think some people are 
still choosing to add it anyway (which is fine).
