I have no opinion on whether it's time for a merge or not, but please
don't wait up for me.

I did, but my suggestions did not get any traction back when a native
citation syntax was first being discussed on the list. Regrettably, I
have not managed to follow up my proposal properly, then or now -- not
even to the point of updating my own sample code after a Zotero
development broke it last year -- and I probably won't in the
foreseeable near future. So I wouldn't want to hold back a
community-developed solution on account that I had a different idea.

My proposal was for a different approach (parsing a "natural-looking"
citation syntax like (Smith 1990: p.3)), which I thought could be both
more user-friendly and more aesthetically pleasing in plain text.  It
was not for improvements to the @cite syntax, so I don't actually know
what is missing from the latter, if anything. I was very excited about
the citeproc contributon, but I have not found the time to test it out.
