Indeed, this is about what cb2Bib does, to a good extent, depending on the nature of the reference.  A simple text reference, like

S J Hickson. On the Sexual Cells and the Early Stages in the Development of Millepora plicata. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. B 179, 193 - 204 (1888). 

may not completely be resolved (not sure in this case): the template on cb2Bib will be partially filled in, and it may require a couple of quick steps to complete the template and save.  Unplugging, one may then enter the abstract or other fields, then save.

  cat ~/references.bib |xclip -selection clipboard

will copy the entirety of the references.bib file to the clipboard.

This is good.  Thank you.  This will certainly be helpful in some cases. 

The case for cb2Bib is somewhat different, as once the template is filled in, one may save it to .bib file, and one may select which file.  If one were able to use a pipe, xclip, or a fifo file, perhaps this could be made immediately available to org-bibtex-read.
