There is a project to create an SGML or XML DTD capturing MARC records that might be a potential starting place. It would have several advantages, including some support from the Library of Congress and compatibility with MARC itself.

On the flip side, MARC is powerful, flexible, and portable -- but you may notice that I did *not* say user friendly :-)
