Indeed, it is hard to imagine a BibTeX file devoid of such markup. How 
would one indicate the (reverse) emphasis of a quoted book title, as in 
/The Cambridge Companion to /Ulysses, except by indicating the emphasis 
of "Ulysses" and letting ConTeXt reverse it when emphasizing the 
complete title? (ยง4.21 of the APA2013 spec requires this.)
