Your proposal looks good to me. Just one question concerning typed citations. 
citeX is good and concise, but why limit this to only one character? What about 
allowing something more verbose? Perhaps "cite-intext:" or "cite:intext:"? 
The simple syntax is great for most cases, but if you want to support some of 
those not so common biblatex commands, this might be better.
What do you think? (I think there's been a discussion about that, but I don't 
remember the exact details.) Anyway, I think your proposal is a good start, and 
it can be extended afterwards.

Concerning some other open questions, I suggest sticking to what citeproc-org 

1. For the bibliography:
#+bibliography: something.bib
(Could this be a list containing multiple files?)

2. Placing the bibliography with:
#+bibliography: here
(Ideally, it would be possible to have this multiple times, perhaps with some 
filters, like printing only the works of a certain author, or with certain 
keywords, or so. But that's, of course something for later...)

3. Setting the style:
#+CSL_STYLE: "some-style.csl"

Of course, if you're using biblatex or natbib you'll need another option for
