Hi Nicolas,
thanks for all your work on this. I've been busy lately, but I'll try to test ASAP. (Might take a few though, just to list you know.)

One of the things I've wondered about, but cannot offer any expertise
on (really, I have no clue), is how this might work for languages like
Arabic or Mandarin.
Of course, different punctuation marks exist, so characters are at least
locale-dependant. But I don't know if the set is entirely determined by
the locale or if it also depends on the "style" of the document.

So the upshot is if users want this functionality for LaTeX/PDF, they
should use oc-biblatex for that export target?
Actually, that's the opposite. I don't know if it is possible, or even
appropriate, to port that feature to `biblatex' and `natbib' processors.
So, ATM, if you want it, and target LaTeX/PDF, your only option is

Here's the scenario I believe Denis was concerned about:
... block with citation at end. [cite:@doe]
I think in standard author-year styles, we'd want:
... block with citation at end. (Doe, 2020)
... while in note-based and "US" (space removed):
... block with citation at end.[1]
Not sure if that has any practical import, but just to clarify.
I understand this, but, AFAICT, this is the output we get already. So
I don't think there is anything to do.

Thank you for the feedback.
