Cataloging is just one use of bibliographic data.  Citations are
another important use.  While different formats (e.g. Postscript &
PDF) should nominally be identical, there's no guarantee, so I'd argue
that each different format should be indexed as a separate
manifestation (or equivalent in the schema of your choice).
