I think what you said in this first thing is "turn off compact".  
Correct?

Thanks; I'll try the patch.

If you turn off compact around the table, there will be blank lines
between the entries.  My patch turns those blank lines into dashed
lines, so if you don't turn off compact, there won't be any blank or
dashed lines.

(A future version of the patch will likely put the dashed lines in
without turning off compact, I just wanted to do the minimal thing for
testing)

"Internet-Draft" is the most common, since the bibxml3 files
use it.  I've seen "ID", "I-D" and "Internet Draft", I think.

i guess bibxml3 wins by virtue of having gotten there first.

we might as well compile a list of values used in the name attribute.  
anyone care to volunteer?
