I can't comment on the innards of the RNG schema regarding the  
biblioref element, but as one of those who originally suggested the  
biblioref element I'd like to confirm that the above usage is what we  
had in mind. It was intended to extend the xref element in a way that  
makes it more useful for citations and bibliographies in the  
humanities (xref would suffice in most cases in life sciences). You  
can make best use of the biblioref element if you maintain (or create  
from a database) a bibliographic listing which also provides the data  
that are needed to render the citation element in the text
