You oppose the solution I have proposed.  OK, I understand that, and I
think I understand why, too.  (I also note with interest that my
approach is already supported by the URN draft, using the "x-"

But what is the correct solution, in your mind?  The only alternative
I know of is the HyTime "bibloc" architectural form.  In your opinion,
John, should there be a similar architectural form (in XML jargon,
"template") in XML?  Or do you have another proposal for indicating
bibliographic references?
