The idea of a "repository for biblio datasets" is part of the K4All plan. We will be posting more detail on the technical architecture shortly, but the goal is to have a rich internal XML schema for metadata that can be mapped to other schemas/formats, similar to what you are suggesting below. The data will be stored in the Fedora repository framework, which provides a great deal of flexibility in how you get the data in and out.

If we can get these datasets into standard formats we agree are useful, e.g. BibJSON or some modernized form of AMF XML logically
