Indeed, there's no way to add a reference to an existing citation.
I admit I didn't think about it. What about appending a reference when
the function is called with C-u?

BTW, there's a reason for `completing-read'. When the function is called
on an existing references, it updates the reference, but preserves
affixes. It would make no sense to insert multiple references.

I encountered this, too. I think this is a Selectrum bug, because when
I disable it, I can successfully use the UI.
