I'm not going to defend what Nicolas characterized as a "terrible
idea,", but to explain a bit ...

The idea was motivated by wanting to access org-cite activate and
follow functionality from the property drawer; NOT export (which as
Nicolas says, would cause problems).

The current (recently-added) org-roam org-cite/citation implementation
uses '@key' syntax in the property drawers, which works fine for
indexing (to associate citations to notes about a citation source),
but not of course for the other functionality.
