Well, yes, the English language is a wonderful thing, and you can
certainly extrapolate from the rather general definition provided for
@corresp an interpretation which would support your using it in this way.
But the fact remains that all the examples in the Guidelines where this
kind of bibliographic reference is explicitly demonstrated
show it being
done with ref@target, and all the examples of suggested uses for @corresp
show it being used for various kinds of linguistic alignment!
Moreover, ref@target comes "for free" in the core module, so whycomplicate
things by loading another module, most of which you don't want?
