Yes, that would address my comments very nicely.

7.  Thoughts on Future Enhancements

    With the planned change in document format, some of the information
    obtained through heuristics might be more directly extracted from the
    XML file.  Once this format is being used by a significant number of
    authors, a future effort might move away from heuristics toward
    extraction from the XML file.  To support this approach, it would be
    desirable for the new XML schema to make the author's continent of
    residence available, even if it not used in the formatting of the
    human-readable document.

Summary: This document is ready for publication as an Informational RFC

Major issues: N/A

Minor issues:
    There are a few references in this document to the format evolution.  It seems that either this document should provide for additional work as those changes occur, or should indicate that such further work will be dealt with separately at the appropriate time.

Nits/editorial comments:
    I wonder if this document could or should identify additional metadata items that the new formats could provide to make these statistics more reliable.
