Not all org files are destined for export. I slightly feel users should be
allowed to put citations in places where it might not make sense in export,
and that they are responsible for knowing what they are doing.

I am sympathetic to the reality that the second half of that statement is a
big ask, and that it can lead to confusion. Nothing stops anyone from
manually typing or pasting a citation into those places though. I would be
inclined to use the activate function to highlight those that are in places
that won't export, rather than limit where people can put them using the
insert mechanism.
