Seeing a concrete example helps.  Helps avoid speculation.  I don't
understand Latex, so I will speculate ...

Seems like a heretical form of Inline footnotes to me.  I would suggest
that you "fake" a Bibliography entry in a *.bib file and use JabRef to
create your "References" or "Endnotes".

You need to just command the machine to do the export :-)

A markup is markup.  The markup I suggest is paragraph-oriented - which
Org is good at.  The markup that you have resorted to is
span/inline-style at which Org sucks.

Why get caught in specifics of Markup when all you want is a Word or a
OpenDocument format or even a plain text format.  

In the grand scheme of things, insisting plain text or Org or Word
doesn't really matter.  If you want and do get Word, then markup - Org
or otherwise - doesn't matter.
