At the moment, org-cite/org-citeproc has no way of talking to Zotero.
So you'd need to manually export citation data from Zotero to a format
that pandoc-citeproc understands, like BibTex.  It sounds like zotxt and
zotxt-emacs provide a lot of what's needed to glue org-cite together
with Zotero; so one thing that would be helpful, if you're up for it, is
hacking org-cite to pull bibliography data from Zotero in a format that
can be passed to org-citeproc.  I don't use Zotero myself, so this is
something I'm unlikely to do anytime soon without some help.  (Borrowing
code from zotxt-emacs and putting it in org-cite is probably the way to
go here, as I doubt that we want to make zotxt-emacs a dependency of

`Flexible and enduring' does not describe org-citeproc at the moment. :)
I'd be very happy to have you test out org-citeproc and give feedback
that will help improve it, but I can't recommend that you rely on it or
switch to it for serious work any time soon.  It is a working
proof-of-concept, but only that.

Still, there is support in org-cite/org-citeproc for both HTML and ODT
export, and it handles quite a few of the common cases.  So let me know
if you're interested in trying it out.  There are brief installation
instructions in the README (https://github.com/wyleyr/org-citeproc); let
me know if you need more than that.
