I would not use a prefix arg here. you should just check what is at the point, and if it is a citation then append it after the citation at point, and if not insert a new one (maybe after moving the point to an appropriate place if needed).

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?

Probably that would work.

BTW, you may already be thinking this, but you may as well add completion from the files registered with OC at this point. :-)

Only having the completion table populated with in-document keys won't be very useful, particularly in a new document.

If you do, ideally it would be extensible/configurable.

Or is the latter already the case?

OTOH, IDK how much you feel the need to get everything done before merger, or whether some pieces can wait?
