I like the way Joe Hildebrand's "idempotent" transformation handles references, and wonder if the bibliographic database is the first area to attack and getting a common base with respec.

I think that makes sense. The identifiers in the current cross-reference data are different from those in the bibref data, but that's something we'll fix as using the same for both makes sense.

If you get started on the patch, don't hesitate to ping me first so that we can sync up on the status of the various moving parts that might be involved!
