Thanks, Ray.  That makes sense, but seems a bit verbose.  At the
moment, since the <accesscondition> element's "type" attribute is
uncontrolled, I am just using "copyright" for the main copyright
statement and "copyrightabstract" for the copyright of the abstract.

Thanks for this.  An interesting alternative, but not one that we can
switch to at this stage.  It's MODS or MODS+extensions for us.
