Currently we can download the PDF documents for all references cited in a patent or patent application. Most documents appear multiple times.
It would be incredibly useful to be able to download an XML or CSV document including citations for all references, including an indication that it has been considered. This would make verifying that everything has been correctly cited much easier.
If you want to make it even more useful, allow us to subsequently upload the XML/CSV to a related application, as an IDS, or use it to populate the IDS form.
