Just to put a fine point on this ...

.. a zotero forum post from earlier today:

<http://forums.zotero.org/discussion/7138/export-patent-information-as-bibtex>

So, user has a "patent" item stored in their database. When they go to
export it to bibtex, much of the data gets lost.

I probably wasn't clear enough in my list posts, but I'd prefer that
the bibtex stuff be removed entirely from the spec. It'd be fine,
however, if it was in a non-normative document apart from the spec.

I'd also prefer that microdata itself be removed in favor of RDFa, but
I proposed an alternative approach given the way this has gone so far
(namely that this effort seems a fait accompli).
