Hi Lou! 

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. 
I'm interested in building an index fontium, complete with notes giving the bibliographic references of the sources (where a "source" is a passage of the text I am editing which has been quoted, silently or not, from another work). 
To build the index fontium, I need to list all the bibliographic references pointing, one way or another, to each work listed in the bibliography (i.e. in the <listBibl>). 
In the current state of the Guidelines, I cannot have a @ref or @target on <bibl> to express the fact that a particular short bibliographic reference is attached to a particular full reference in the bibliography. Yet, I need to tag the author and title part of the short reference, because they need particular display rules. I would wrap my <bibl> in a <ref>, but I hear it's not nice :)

But why do you want to tag <author> inside the <ref> anyway? "Toto" 
isn't the author of the ref, it's the author of the thing being 
referenced. When you want to extract a list of all the works of Toto, 
you probably won't want to see these mere pointers, will you?

I also want the short bibliographic reference to be linked somehow to the full one in the bibliography.
