Well, "partial band" DJs could have been added to a jacketless real  
first book whereas ISBNs added to books that have old first edition  
slugs constitute a different problem -- the former were done (I  
assume) outside the factory and the latter were done at the printer's.

So I would think that the meaningful one to keep track of would be  
the "factory errors."  Yes? No? Maybe?
