I am indeed talking more about academic CVs than resumes; but academic
CVs are not all bibliography, either: there's committee service,
administration, grants, as well as software and the like. Also, the
different agencies often want different things; so an ability to mark
things as significant, or refereed, or even "NEH SSHRC ULeth" (or some
subset of this) so that they could be added or subtracted as required
would be ideal.
I see the question I was posing more as a use case. My ideal solution
would be a form driven updater (like James suggests) with sheets for the
different agencies. I was kind of hoping somebody had made start.
