Fair enough. I don't think the standard link syntax is rich enough for this.

I worked out the basis for an alternative approach here:
that might also be adaptable for your use case. It basically gets
towards the cite syntax but doesn't require adding new elements and
other things.

I updated the org-ref docs on why we don't currently do more than the
simple pre/post text. I don't have anything against supporting more, I
just don't know how to do it, or when it would be right ;)
