It might be a good idea to look into how references can be shared 
between the IETF tools collection and this application (mostly for W3C).

Hi all,

folks from the Anolis and ReSpec tools have been talking together in 
order to figure out a way to share the data for the bibliographical 
references and definition cross-references.

Thanks to that, there is now a shared repository, using a shared data 
format, as well as an HTTP API to get at the reference data.

All of that is now live, but neither tool has enabled using that just 
yet, but I would like to switch it on for ReSpec rather soon if possible 
given that it would speed things up lots.

Other tools are of course very much welcome to reuse the same data and 

I won't bore you with the details here, you can read them at: 

Feedback is welcome, especially if you have nagging doubts that this 
might not be done right.
