Hi, Peter!

I think one reason that the documentation might be lacking for trying to authority control 260 subfields is that this isn't a very standard thing to do, since 260 (and 264) are supposed to be transcribed to aid in identification of the title.  Would your client accept a more standard way for access to authority controlled fields for this aspect of the titles, which would be to add a 710 for the authorized form of the publisher's name, and a 751 for the authorized form of the geographic location of the publisher?

This may be not possible at all for your setting, though, but that being the more standard approach might help explain why there might not be a lot of information out there to control subfields in 26X fields.
