Yes.  The to-do list item is for those people who want to directly include bibxml information via XML entity references (or the RFCXML PIs created for this); these cannot massage the XML returned from the web service.  The massaging can easily be done by an authoring tool such as kramdown-rfc or when including the bibxml manually.
