I think this will be a problem that is processor specific. It is
important that org have a reasonable performance here, but I don't think
it was a goal to have the fastest bibtex/json/etc. parser available,
just a reasonable default that works out of the box. That is, it doesn't
take too long to read the database for insertion, and fontification is
not a performance breaker, on say a moderate sized database and
org-file. Getting high performance from large databases and large files
with lots of citations (say a dissertation or big review article) takes
some work.
