I actually brought this up in December in response to Brian's straw
but the words I thought to use were "collection" or "in". I like "in"
because some citation formats actually use that word to describe this

"In", being a preposition, sounds kludgy on its own, but reads very well
within the code:
<span class="in hcite">
Note too that this problem exists for other parts of citations, like
publisher data: most book citations are published with the city of
publication, but this is more appropriately the `adr` field of a nested
hcard for the publisher. Here, nested data is appropriate to the top-
citation as well.
