There are a number of open questions.

  • It's unknown what happens to a LabelCode when a label changes its name. Is the LabelCode kept, or does it have to change? If it does, is it a problem to have different labels with the same LabelCode in the database?
  • What to do if a label changes its name, and then "silently" reissue (or more exactly reprint the sleeves) its catalog under its new name, with the same catalog numbers (and possibly barcodes)? We may end-up with somewhat duplicated entries in the system. Do we care?
