At this point, I don't have enough understanding of the problem to have
an opinion. IIUC, your example does not even mention citations. How
should it be used, what should be the output in LaTeX, and in UTF-8
export? This is not clear to me.

What can I say however is: if this feature implies to change, or extend,
syntax, then it is /de facto/ a blocker for the merge, and needs to be
sorted out.
