Preliminary Authority Records

Here is another preliminary authority record:

American Association of Petroleum Geologists. |b Committee on Structural Nomenclature

It was created in 1985 as shown by the ID n 85806886. It was updated in 2008 as shown by 005. But it is still PRELIMINARY. How long can these stay preliminary?

I just had my NACO training, so I'm not an expert, but I believe it means that the agency that created the record had nothing in hand that the committee had published. They established the heading by seeing what they could find in catalogs, but we can't use that as a final source, we need to look at something they published.
