Indeed, that was my point. Even without the mathematics components that
were cited, I cannot imagine how markup could be excluded from the
BibTeX file, and for that matter, from any other bibliographical
database I have seen, if we have to comply with arbitrary formatting
standards. The statement that one should not put any such formatting
into the file is perhaps aspirational, but not really useful.
