I agree. I think the fundmental last hump to get over is the choice
between a largely monolithic and flat BibTeX-like approach, and a more
modular and relational DC-like approach. The choice is crtiical
because it has significant implications to the flexibility of hCite.

On the nesting example, though, this would be the more typical case
(chapter in a book, rather than vice versa), and one could forego

<div class="hcite">
 <div class=chapter">
  <span class="title">Chapter Title</span>
  <div class="isPartOf">
     <span class="title">Book Title</span>

To me typing is nice, but not critical, paricularly if the rest of the
data is sound.
