Hi Carsten!

yes, you are right. That's why I think it's helpful to look at RDA's
chronology and numbering elements and refine them down to the item
level, in the aspect of library holding statements. In RDA, there are no
item elements in the core, such as holdings, acquisition details, access
information, distribution and usage restrictions, because it was
considered to better define them locally. 

In other words, for shared cataloging networks like ZDB or union
catalogs, which are relying on a common method to create holding
information, there is a chance to fill this gap with a recommendation
for item elements.

Best regards,
