No, I guess you're not missing anything... Though a two year DocBook user,
I am not an expert...

I prefered not to use DocBook tags to make sure I did not interfere with 
DocBook itself... I've just seen the RefDB implementation...

Ok, how about:

<jref:cite/> -> 
<citation role="JReferences"><xref linkend="ReferenceID"/></citation>
<jref:reflist/> -> 
<bibliography role="JReferences"/>

The role of bibliography @role attribute could be extended to give the 
style... e.g.

<bibliography role="JReferences:ACS"/>

The advantage is (now I see) that anyone can use any customization
wether public or private and still use JReferences... right?

Would this solve your issue? If so, I'll implement this as such in the
next release.

kind regards, and many thanx for the feedback!
