Why is this sad?
Citation and co-citation work because links are semantically
rich (ie. they reflect the intentions of human authors
surprisingly well *without* needing complex domain modelling) and
don't require much cleverness on the part of search engines.
That's surely a win ... unless you think that AI is The Only Way.
