Subject: open RFEs for possible inclusion in final DocBook V4.3

There a few open RFEs that have been around for quite a while that we
haven't really taken any action on, so I'm hoping we can determine
current status for them before this month's TC call (so that we don't
burn up time during the call trying to figure out what the status is) --
and maybe get some of them into the final V4.3 release, if possible.

  RFE 435518 (Allow bibliography in refsect1)

    Status is "closed", but I can't see that any resolution or reason
    for closing it was ever recorded.

    Before it was closed, status was that Norm proposed adding a
    new Bibliolist element, to parallel Glosslist. Seems like a
    reasonable change, so not sure why it was dropped.

  RFE 742624 (refentry and bibliography)

    RFE 742624 is on the list of open RFEs for discussion during this
    month's TC meeting, but I think it may amount to just being a
    duplicate of RFE 435518.

  RFE 686733 (allow bibliography under <refentry>)

    RFE 686733 is also on the list of open RFEs for discussion during
    this month's call, but I wanted to note that it has been open for
    quite a while pending feedback from Dennis Evans -- so wondering if
    we might be able to get that feedback before the call.

  RFE 482818 (Simplify ToC content model)

    RFE 482818 is also on the list of open RFEs for discussion during
    this month's call, but I wanted to note that though it has also been
    open for quite a while, it's not clear what current status is, or
    what we're waiting on. I think we may just be awaiting a final TC
    vote on it, but not sure.
