TR references generator with a nicer interface

Hello spec-prod,

You may remember that W3C has a TR bibliography extractor that allows to
build references section based on the URIs of the technical reports to
be included:
http://www.w3.org/2002/01/tr-automation/tr-biblio-ui

As I was using it today for one of the spec I edit, I found it pretty
cumbersome to have to find the proper latest version URI for each of the
specs, especially given the infamous trailing-slash or not variations.
So, instead of having to do it by hand, I've built a nicer interface to
choose and pick Technical Reports:
http://www.w3.org/2000/06/webdata/xslt?xslfile=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%
2F2005%2F06%2Ftr-shopping.xsl&xmlfile=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2002%
2F01%2Ftr-automation%2Ftr.rdf

It is also based on an XSLT stylesheet run on the TR data in RDF:
http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tr-shopping.xsl

In addition, the extractor now generates a label when none is given,
based on the latest version URI of the reference.

I've also slightly improved the output of the bibliography extractor, to
make it easier to re-use the URIs once found. 

(I've followed DanC's example of having a comment in my HTML code with
the input needed to regenerate a bibliography, à la:

xhtml to xmlspec


I know it probably can't be done entirely, but a stylesheet that does
most of the work of transforming a spec in XHTML into one in xmlspec
(i.e. the inverse of xmlspec.xsl) would be incredibly useful for people
wanting to switch to xmlspec. Has anybody worked on one?

I'm sure it's not that hard to at least:
- group <h*> to <section>
- renaming of inline links: <a> to <link>, etc.
- generate the bibliography (just joking, although it's probably not impossible...)
- remove the ToC
etc.

Max.
