Yes, right now I intend to use the CMF Bibliography Archetype as a base
(same as you are using on the Axiom Portal)...but I think it leaves some
things to be desired, and I'd like to enhance it. Improving searching
would be one.
My goal in doing a search is to find the unique ID to reference a paper
by, so I can type \cite{foo} on my wiki page. Or I'm looking to
download the paper. Neither of which are possible/easy with the CMF
Bibliography Archetype, as it stands.

That is exactly what I have in mind. But furthermore the page displayed
at:
http://portal.axiom-developer.org/refs/axiombib/Duval1992EPS
is almost useless because it does not provide any link to any on-line
database which would let me download the paper. It has only a cryptic
journal citation. I think one would have to be an expert in the field
to decode j-IFIP-TRANS-A <#j-IFIP-TRANS-A> A-2:133\u2013141, 143.
For the \cite{} I would rather have one huge bibliography, with every
paper on the planet. The contents of the \cite{} should identify the
paper, rather than the local bibliography ('axiombib') to look in. For
instance, \cite{arXiv:hep-ph/01234567} or
\cite{ADS:2001Sci...294.1320M}, where I assume that the 'arXiv:' and
'ADS:' can be dropped because the text string itself is sufficently
unique to figure out which database to look in.
The difference is that I assume NO ONE will add any entry to the bibtex.
Rather the server will keep a database and update it automatically when
you type \cite{hep-ph/0123457}. Keep the users away from database
maintainence. It's hard enough just to find the paper in the first
place.
If you want to process a pamphlet in latex it's easy enough to extract
the bibtex entries used and export them.
