Bibliographics screen-scraping With Javascript

Alf Eaton just posted a cool article about screen-scraping with Javascript that puts together some building blocks from Zotero, amazon, and others to completely parse and output some bibliographic data.

The point of this is to try and make Javascript scrapers that will run in Firefox (for Zotero), WebKit (for BibDesk and Papers) and Rhino (server-side, for Connotea, CiteULike, Bibsonomy, etc).

Sounds pretty cool. Of course, WebKit is a fork of KHTML, which is what Tellico uses for a HTML viewer. I've not doubt I could cobble up something using Alf's work, similar to the new browser in BibDesk, that might let me browse and pull bibliographic data right into Tellico...
