It doesn't now.

I guess to break down the second question further:

1. Should it?
2. Can it? Could the design be extended to include internal referencing?
2. If yes to both, should that hold back merger now?

I've not thought about this a lot, but my tentative view ...

1. Maybe.
2. I think so. You'd just need a way to include internal targets in
addition to the citation-references (keys); for illustration,
something like [cite:#some-if].
3. No.

I say no in part because while it's possible it's fairly
straightforward to add this, it will take some thought, and there's
probably details to sort out.

And the code is ready, I think, based on the requirements that have
been the focus the past year+.

OTOH, perhaps this basic requirements question was raised before I
joined the discussion, and it was already rejected?

Either way, I don't think this should hold back merger now. It can be
added later if it makes sense.
