while this is no short-term solution, you might have a look at my
RefDB project (http://refdb.sourceforge.net). This is a SQL-based
reference database that creates bibliographies for BibTeX and DocBook
(and no, not yet for TEI, which may be the sobering fact
here). Technically it would not be hard at all to add a TEI backend
and to tweak some stylesheets in a similar fashion like I did with
Norm Walsh's DocBook stylesheets. I have never worked with TEI or its
stylesheets so I can't say whether this would really work. But if
there is demand for such a thing (with n>1, ideally), we might look at
