I'm seeing a variation and also some questions about adding the dimensions 
of the CD-ROM. I note in the BL workflow that their policy is not to record 
dimensions of accompanying material.

I did include it, going by 3.1.4 to include details of each carrier type 
and then applying the LC-PCC PS for 3.5.1.4.4 which says to give inches for 
discs. Actually I dislike this current practice, maybe now is the time to 
rethink it (though it's hard to go against LC/PCC practice because it will 
cause problems then with downloaded records being in inches).

I abbreviated the "inches" to "in." because 3.5.1.3 on dimensions points 
you to appendix B.5.1 and from there to App.B.7 which says that you can 
abbreviate inches to in. This seems so illogical though, when we've learned 
that RDA means no more abbreviations. We already have the slightly odd 
situation of "cm" becuase it's technically not an abbreviation but an SI. 
Maybe I'm edging towards thinking we either move to metric dimensions for 
everything or we omit dimensions of accompanying material following BL 
practice.
