The bug report is 559737:


Attached to the Tracker item is an updated "iso-num.ent" file to show
an example of the sort of prefatory comments we might want to add. I
just based those on the comments in the DocBook DTD files.

I added a follow-up comment to the Tracker item for this RFE, and also
e-mailed the submittor (Brian Lalonde) to ask him to:

  * provide an example showing the content he wants to mark up
  * provide an an example showing how he proposes it should be marked
    up (i.e. with 'reflist').

That's it.
