Well, it could provide some -- dare I say? -- CONTEXT. Having the 
classification could help a resolver route the request to the 
appropriate library catalog if a union catalog isn't available. Having 
the classification could aid a service trying to disambiguate author 
names. Having the classification could provide a library with 
interesting statistics on requests, failed requests, and collection 

Probably none of this is done today, but I think the LCC will become 
more interesting to us as we begin to go beyond bibliographic matching 
to bibliographic data mining.
