I thought I'll get in trouble with my 3rd example :-)

I came up with the above crazy idea while mapping this info (excerpted for brevity):
            <doc.type>X-ray film</doc.type>
            <doc.whereabouts>Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis</doc.whereabouts>

I guess the right way is:
- either map to E84_Information_Carrier ONLY (not much conceptual info here!)
- or map to E84_Information_Carrier that P128_carries an E31_Document (and no properties in the E31_Document)
