About the extension:  What does not attract me it is that  the extension
compels me to use another software out of LibO, and I believe that LibO is
too good to need a third party to carry out a task as simple as the format
to an information which we have in a database made with LibO.

Sorry, but the simple truth is that developing and maintaining just a few of
the diverse range of defined styles is out of scope for LibreOffice--but is
fully in scope for projects like Zotero and Mendeley--or the commercial
EndNote product.

Instead LibreOffice provides just the authoring framework for documents in
ODF--to the extent that framework can be extended to support industry
standards CSL (FOSS)  or ENS (EndNote) we should. 

Improving that framework to support schemes for fielded citation while
writing--supporting parenthetical citation, footnotes, endnotes, and
bibliograhy compliant with styles described in CSL or ENS is where our
development efforts should concentrate. Including collaboration with the
developers of the extensions providing the capability--but it should not be
core to the project.
