In the most recent (April 2010) issue of the CSA Newsletter (Vol. XXIII, No. 1), is Nick Eiteljorg's short piece The Scholarly Apparatus: When Should It Be There? Citations, credibility, and pride of authorship. His comment is a plea to those who publish online to make an effort to make their works citable. I'm completely sympathetic. I am also quite sure that we need citation formats flexible enough to describe the evidence however it presents itself.
