Subject: 776 Field Indicator Question

We have a question about the first indicator for the 776 field.
(Additional Physical Form Entry)  According to the CONSER Editing
Guide "The first indicator determines the note display.  In most
cases, a note is not generated and the first indicator is set to value
"1"  Why wouldn't you generate a note?  Is this just something left
over from the world of paper catalogs?  OCLC records tend to reflect
this practice...
