Why is this sad?

Citation and co-citation work because links are semantically
rich (ie. they reflect the intentions of human authors 
surprisingly well *without* needing complex domain modelling) and 
don't require much cleverness on the part of search engines.

That's surely a win ... unless you think that AI is The Only Way.
