No, that's not a good solution because you then still need a special tool to resolve that syntax into something useful.

Just include a link to the canonical location of what's cited. Simple to do (just paste the link), gives decent results without tools (just hover or click the link) and very good results with tools (get the citation text in the format du jour from the citation database).
