the reason why we are interested in avoiding redundancy is our workflow:
 Our editors are creating the files and will be modifying them. They
would have to double the <monogr> information for each of the articles
included in one book. Or, in case of a correction, they would have to do
the correction in up to 15/20 files.

That's why we are using XInclude; therefore our biblStruct-files are
always valid and complete.

Thank you very much!
