Does anyone know what's up with BL adding 10 million records to OCLC?
( See http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/Digest/The-British-Library-Adds--Million-Records-to-WorldCat-71930.asp
). They seem to be going in two directions—toward open data and away
from it.

Does OCLC have any sort of special deal, or are they now subject to
the clauses about not contributing to efforts that undermine OCLC?
