Fine by me - any format really will do, as long as it is reasonably wide
spread and accessible.

That sounds great. As said though in my last post - I am worried about
adding confusion with added entries - particularly if partially
redundant in info. I did a run through my own modules to create a
rudimentary bibtex bibliography and found the data created needed a huge
amount of editing before it became useful. But maybe simply some serious
discipline will do the job.
