My motivation for keeping bibliography in org was to keep all local
information about a paper (including notes and comments) in one place.
This should make it easier to find it.

Meanwhile I found org-bibtex.  It seems to implement just what I had in
mind and is even included in orgmode by default.  The following function
can be used to save a org-bibtex headline into the kill-ring in bib
format, so that it can be yanked into a project-specific .bib-file:

(defun my-org-bibtex-kill-ring-save-headline ()
  (kill-new (org-bibtex-headline)))

I like to keep papers under version control, and the commenting that you
suggest does not seem to fit this way of working very well.
