I would ask for more stylistic or semantic tagging to be added to the XML export. A good example is that of bibliographies, where font styles carry significant semantic meaning (depending on the standard used: italic for book titles, ibold or talic for volume and issue numbers, and so on.) The xml output reflects none of this.

I'll add some structure to publications but styling is upto a css and will never be part of the export (so on ehas to use 'detail' etc then).

I do not know whether one would want stylistic tagging (italic, bold, ...) or semantic (booktitle, issue number). In either case, they could be implemented as highlights or tagged elements, both of which are currently carried through, and the user could then apply the appropriate styling with css or other transformation mechanisms.

Indeed. So basic subtags is one thing. The other is including the whole blob for whatever usage.

The ability to point register entries to something other than page numbers would also be useful. For export formats (XML) this requires that label references be part of the export.
This needs more thinking.
