[tei-council] Fwd: TEI bibliography

The message below is regarding 
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/SIG/Education/tei_bibliography.xml , 
which I have been maintaining recently on behalf of the SIG on 
Education.  I wanted to consult with the convenor of the SIG on 
Education, but apparently the position is currently vacant, so I'd like 
your thoughts.

I am sympathetic to Joel's desire to make the data more useful, and I 
might be able to get my intern to do this.  Furthermore, I like the idea 
of making it easier for multiple people to contribute to the 
bibliography (as with Zotero's group ownership).

But I also realize that one advantage to using TEI is that the 
bibliography is in a content similar to most other content on the TEI 
website.  I don't know of any other bibliographies on the site right 
now, but an outside system is one more thing to keep track of and 
migrate content out of in case it becomes no longer available.

Your thoughts?

Is there any possibility that the TEI bibliography you're maintaining (
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/SIG/Education/tei_bibliography.xml) might be
moved to reference management software such as Zotero? The bibliography as
static XML, even if TEI-compliant, is not as useful as it would be were it
in a database.

Thanks for your consideration,
