Just to clarify: I see that this is necessary when getting a citation
object via org-element-context, but is it also necessary in an export
context, where the whole buffer or region has already been parsed?

I ask because in that kind of context, I think it is generally going to
be more useful to deal with citation objects as a whole.  I am not sure
we will want to treat citation-references as individual objects which
are themselves exported; instead, I think we will want to handle
exporting the citation-references in a citation all at once.
