80% is exactly the point, i have started to put together a list of
"common" citation types, MODS, BibTeX, Dublin Core, etc. Then trying to
map the names between the many different formats, DC.Title->Title,
Bibtex.year->DC.Date, etc.

Then when we find all the common propties, we just give them our own
names (title, description, etc). Then everyone will know that the
Microformat.Title maps to ... in their own format. The cite-format[1]
page is the start of the current mappings, feel free to add/edit/delete
the terms.

>From that we can start to work-out the best way to encode the data.
