Crossref is not only a particular technology but also a business model that
involves the publishers providing citation information. I don't know the
details but I suspect publishers use it because they get greater exposure.
An Open implementation might have this attraction for publishers but it
would be seen as a threat by publishers who aggregate and sell raw citation
material and also downstream services.
There are therefore at least two separate questions:
- how do we get Open citation data
- how do we build the technology to make it useful
I think the first is the hardest - I am not sure whether thisw was involved
in the original question (which used Crossref as an example)
