Antoine, et al,

I should have made it clear that I was referring to the DCAM examples, 
not the examples... but both discussions are good. :-)

I added some notes to the ISBD examples[1] after reading up on ISBD. I 
now feel that these examples will not be useful for the DCAM discussion 
because the thrust of ISBD really is display (or textual markup, if you 
will), and the "data elements" are parts of a display string that must 
be maintained in the order in which it is provided by the cataloger. I 
think it would be difficult (although maybe not impossible) to 
reconstruct the correct display order algorithmically.

I think that a better example would be the enumeration elements for a 
journal article citation: volume, number, date, pagination. These can be 
re-combined in various types of displays, e.g.

   v. 1, n. 7, March/April, 1997. pp. 156-158

I could write this one up if people think it is useful.
