Make sense, but with a caveat: not all styles work well for preview.

Might be worth looking at how the Zettle markdown editor implements
citations in general, as it's well-done, well-documented, and gone
through a few iterations.

It uses pandoc for the citations syntax and processing.


If point is within the citation brackets, you see the raw syntax, so
you can edit it.

Once you are outside the brackets, having already inserted the
citation, you see a preview of the output.

Examples; the top raw, bottom previewed version of the same.

Aside: this is somewhat similar to Nicolas' demo.

That preview is always the same author-date style, regardless of the
output style selected.

So if you choose a footnote-based style for export, you still see the
author-date preview.

This makes sense, because the purpose is only to confirm you have the
right citation.

You also have a "references" sidebar that shows you a previewed list
of all cited references.
