I find the format OK.  I can't imagine a vastly superior format for
metadata...

I organize articles like

  ~/documents/literature/FirstAuthorYear[UniqueSuffixAsNecessary]

E.g. 
  
  ~/documents/literature/smith88/smith88.bib
  ~/documents/literature/smith88/smith88.pdf
  ~/documents/literature/smith88/smith88_data.zip
  ~/documents/literature/smith88/smith88_notes.org

I then create

  ~/documents/literature/lit.bib

which is is a concatenation of all *.bib files in subfolders as well as a
special file, various.bib, which holds entries I don't want to maintain.

In addition, I generate lit.{org,html} which summarizes of all metadata
and notes with links to pdfs.

Cheers,
Rasmus
