This is very interesting! I agree with the formatting of the footnote. Formats places the reference at the end of the print page, but of course the braille title page is not a print page. So you have placed the reference at the end of the title page. I think that's a fine solution. A comment about the reference indicator symbol--if the asterisk is the ONLY type of reference mark used in the text, just the base indicator, 2356, 2356 is used. It is not necessary to show that it is an asterisk. And in that case it is identified simply as a reference indicator. See Formats 16.3.1

Your print sample does not include this Control Number so I can't see what it is. Formats discusses ONLY printing history and also requires the information about the printing history to be on the second title page. So if you're sure this control number is not the printing history under a different name, you can either omit it entirely or determine if the agency requires it. And if you're sure this is not actually the printing history, do not include that note about printing history.

My final comment concerns the material on the second title page. You have additional information about the publisher that I believe belongs on the main title page. Also, I don't think the officers of the publishing company are included in any case. The information about the publisher segment of the title page does not seem to include such information.

Consultants are included only if directed by the agency. And I think all the other personnel you have listed such as the editorial, project management and technology editorial information are not generally included at all. Of course if you have been specifically directed by the agency to include all this, then certainly do so.
