There are not normally any supplemental data sets (where the data and
chemicals live)  in the Medline distro so chemicals and data don't arise
(except in fulltext, i.e. only Open Access allowed). So you can concentrate
on just the bibliographic data. Although in principle this is a pity, in
practice it gives us a breathing space and a chance to work on a limited
subset well. I will keep pushing the political stuff.
