I am neither suggesting we do or we don't accept BibTeX, and am neither
suggesting we use or we don't use another namespace. I'm just saying, get
something working and build from that. The history of the Internet shows that
it really doesn't matter *what* you start from.

Now, it is a happy coincidence that the microformat I've created as an ad-hoc
thing and am using on You Need To Read This uses exactly the same namespace as
BibTeX - but that is because "author", "title" and "book" are pretty obvious
names for the things they describe. :)

A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.
