I agree that this seems like a consensus on 'hcite' as the root class name.
I have updated the examples on citation-brainstorming to reflect this,
and added a note to the working straw schema.

There is a note about using <cite> as the recommended root element - I
don't feel strongly about this - does anyone else? I suppose a final
standard should have a note to suggest using <cite> when appropriate,
but I'm not concerned about it now.

I, for one, don't know.
