I propose that <ptr> be allowed in the <biblStruct>,
<analytic>, and <monogr> elements.

It is often necessary to point to other elements when
constructing bibliographic entries within a
<biblStruct> element. For example,
if you are trying to describe a review, you need to
point to the work being reviewed:

<!--the article of the review-->
<biblStruct>
<analytic>
<author>
...
</author>
<title>This book is work reading</title>
<!--point to book being reviewed with its
authors-->
<!--not valid TEI!-->
<ptr target="book-reviewed"/>
</analytic>
</biblStruct>

<!--the book being reviewed-->
<biblStruct id="book-reviewed">
<monogr>
...
</monogr>
</biblStruct>

Right now, it is impossible to use either <ptr> or
<ref> inside the <analytic>, <monogr>, or <biblStruct>
elements. This makes pointing
impossible and unnecessarily restricts the scope of
<biblStruct>.

    As the person who submitted this proposal, I would like to
    withdraw it. The group working on bibliographic data in TEI
    has submitted proposals that would make this proposal on
    <ptr> unneccesary.
