Subject: Re: [dita] question regarding book numbering in DITA/DocBook

For some additional follow-up:
DocBook has also added biblioid and citebiblioid with a class
attribute in bookinfo (and other info elements/classes). The legal 
values of this attribute will be: doi, isbn, isrn, issn, 
libraryofcongress, other, pubnumber, uri. The elements isbn, issn, and 
pubnumber are deprecated, and will be removed in 6.0.

I think there should be an abstract identifier element in DITA as a 
child of bookmeta (and other meta elements), to track this kind of 
information in a similar fashion.

Best regards,
