I would like to get a system similar to the regular <ref></ref> system for references, except instead of printing out the notes at the <references/> tag, it would print out the references in a separate page. For instance, we could write a tag:
<ref target="My Book/Glossary">...</ref>
And on the page "My Book/Glossary" the references would print out at the <references/> tag. It would be similar to a category, I think, except that the page name would not be displayed on the target page, the note would be.
This would be a real big help for wikibooks, where most books have a glossary or bibliography (or both) and all those pages need to be generated and updated by hand.

Probably specifying the target page is a bad idea - what happens when you move My Book/Glossary? You'll have to change all the refs which point there. Instead it should pull refs from a specified set of pages (ideally from the whole book, once bug 15071 is done; specified manually otherwise).
I had suggested a different syntax on bug 15070:
Book/Table of Contents
I think that would be a task for the BookManager:
