The document recommends that the vocabulary for “Publication Format” come from MARC Bibliographic Leader/07 (http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bdleader.html) I agree with recommending a standard vocabulary. However, the examples in Table 6 use vocabulary not present in the MARC documentation, namely “Manuscript” and “Image.”

Submitter Proposed Solution

Use vocabulary in MARC Bibliographic Leader/07 for “Publication Format” examples Table 6. It seems that all four available terms are possible publication formats in the “Manuscripts/Unpublished content” and “Media content” columns.
