Hmmm. It might be useful, but we aren't doing that here, and I'm having a
hard time figuring out how you would know whether a given item was peer
(without just asking a human that is). It's usually not indicated in the
metadata, although you might be able to infer it in certain cases (i.e.
came from a publishers
website, or contains publication metadata from a journal known to be
peer-reviewed). Did you have a mechanism in mind to decide that?
