USE CASE: Allow users to maintain bibliographies or otherwise keep track of sources of quotes or references.
     * Chaals could improve the Opera intranet if he had a mechanism for
       identifying the original source of various parts of a page. (why?)

Because the page is put together by various different people (or processes), so knowing who is responsible for some bit that needs work is important in contacting the right person faster. (This isn't specific to Opera's intranet, of course. That happens to be the one I use most).

* Machine-readable bibliographic information shouldn't be on a separate page than human-readable bibliographic information.
    * The information should be convertible into a dedicated form (RDF,
JSON, XML, BibTex) in a consistent manner, so that tools that use this information separate from the pages on which it is found
       have a standard way of conveying the information.
