perspective, latex-centred approaches are I guess fine but don't
immediately solve any issues for me. My use cases are (a) publication to
the web, either of papers or, especially,  of teaching resources; and (b)
circulation of scholarly work in  .docx or (in rare best-case scenarios)
markdown.  I would really be grateful if work on citations left the door
open for these formats, which are going to be with us for a long time.

Again, thanks to all you guys for your work on this.
