'Sharing' source codes among various elements

On the Subject Heading and Term source codes page, LC says:

“These sources are general subject heading and thesauri, such as the Library of Congress Subject Headings, along with a number of focused subject term lists like Medical Subject Headings or Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names. Additional specialized lists are provided with source codes in

  • Genre/Form Term and Code Source Codes
  • Occupation Term Source Codes
  • Function Term Source Codes

Since general thesauri often contain a broad spectrum of terms, including genre, forms, occupations, and functions, the source codes in this list may be used in the metadata elements identified for each of the specialized source lists. Likewise, the special thesauri listed there may also be used in the metadata elements identified below under usage.

Some subject heading lists incorporate names and titles and others employ independent name and title lists for parts of a subject heading. Thus the lists assigned source codes in Name and Title Source Codes may also be used in the metadata elements identified below under usage”

Interpretation

This seems to mean that all of the source codes in all of the lists mentioned above can, for validation purposes, be joined together into a single list, and that the source codes in this expanded list will then be valid in any MARC element listed in the 'Usage' section of any of the lists mentioned above.
