could we develop a plugin that allows author / title / ISBN information via wikipedia from the bibliographic datasets? could we collect information via this about any changes / updates required to the records?

(this idea was originally mentioned during the JISC open bib project via the community - not actually by me).

It's crucial to have complete and correct references in the wikipedia, because it would help us to do cool stuff. Btw. This idea somhow inspired our proposal.
