You can refer to subtypes and versions in a structured way, eg.
But I would suggest that you know the exact dialect used withing your
system, and it still *conforms* to the broader dialect so don't over
Knowing if a field contains wiki markup, html, etc. will make it much
easier to merge (bibliographic) data from multiple sources.
RST can be added to xtypes if that helps.
