Your suggestions make a lot of sense.

I don't know. Is the key by chance wrong?

As for the "follow" functionality you're asking about, this is mostly
what third party processors are for; "oc-basic" is intentionally

This landscape is still new, but my oc-bibtex-actions one allows you,
for example, to use embark to run different actions from an org-cite
citation. By default it will open associated documents or links.


John Kitchin's org-ref-cite does similar with a hydra menu, though I'm
unsure of his plans for the package.
