[Enhance] LC records overlaying OCLC master records

I need to have a review of what could happen should LC make any changes to
a record that would then get redistributed, including to OCLC. Which if
any fields are protected from overlay in OCLC?
I am concerned because we are increasingly making enhancements and
corrections to LC records in the area of international studies, changes
that don't result in a change in encoding level.
I seem to remember that non-Roman fields that LC lacks will not get wiped
out, and that some kind of series protection is now there so series don't
all revert back to 490s. But what about other things? LC records are
treated differently than all others, but I am not sure this makes sense
any longer in the new "network-level" environment we are trying to build.
