Yes, it contains bib2bib and even the main bibtex2html contains
functionality for this.

Now how do we want to do this with org-mode?
1) The user is responsible for creating a bib-file using
whatever tools she prefers (e.g. bib2bib).
2) Add an option to just select the entries that are used
in the org-file. Nothing fancy.
3) Add a generic API to select+sort+format the entries.

Both 1 and 2 are easy to do. I can create a patch that 
adds support for this later this week. Are there any
other features that you would need?
