My guess is that as soon as someone creates a workflow document, it will appear in the Toolkit. But at this point, I'm not sure there are really any practitioners who quite understand (yet) exactly how the new guidelines are going to be used in "the real world". ;)

Proudly wearing the sensible shoes since 1978!
The PCC Policy Committee has said that PCC will not be implementing the new RDA Toolkit before July 2022. It is my understanding that LC would prefer to train their catalogers in the new RDA using BIBFRAME and not MARC, and this will take some time to do that and create the application profiles for BIBFRAME.

From the same URL in my last message, the document: RDA Beta Toolkit Project: Joint LC/PCC Effort, states that training in the new Toolkit will not start before fall 2021, and possibly later, so it will be some time before LC & PCC adopt the new Toolkit RDA.
