Would it be fair to say that <bibStruct> can only describe an expression, whereas <bibl> can describe anything? <bibl>
is just a container into which people can shovel any bibliographically-related, or other, markup that they like, including
figures, notes, lingusitic markup, feature structures and apparatus criticus. So while its true that the semantics
of bible and biblStruct are the same ("bibliographic citation”), those semantics are sufficiently vague (coming
from a more innocent age, perhaps, before the FRB-ized takeover) so as to allow <bibl> at least to stray into
the manifestation mode or even the item.
