Enable Endnote for patent import

As I work in an industrial context, patent publications are as important as literature publications. What I miss (terribly) is a function to import patents (from pdf or Patent-ID) into my library and CWYW them. Since the format of patents is more standardized than literature publications and all patents are provided free of charge from the patent offices, it would be easy to automatically import them into an endnote library (with full functionality). Some fields of the reference type “patent” would need re-definition, as they don’t suit patent reality well.
I would be more than happy to assist your software engineers to develop endnote ahead with this most significant leap I can think of. The rest of endnote works excellently for me.
