in his recent edits, Paul is deprecating xref/@format (see
"...because it doesn't seem to be in any significant use."
I found that surprising as it has important uses, and I was pretty sure
it is indeed used a lot. So I ran statistics on AUTH48 RFC XML snapshots
in the range 6000-6999 (attached is the raw data, plus the XSLT I used).
The total number of files that actually are wellformed XML *and* have
<xrefs> in them is 562.
The number of occurrences for the different values of @format are:
@format values other than "" and "default" occurred in 117 files (~20%).
My conclusion is that yes, @format is used in practice, and I see no
reason to deprecate it.
Best regards, Julian
