I would be very interested to get feedback on this proposal from someone 
who is using BIBO or SPAR [1] primarily for academic citations. There is 
a long-standing bifurcation between the library community and its 
cataloging, and the academic/researcher community, which has different 
bibliographic goals. Presuming that this proposal should be usable by 
both, perhaps a proof of concept is needed. Would it be appropriate to 
solicit comments from the developers or users of these standards?
