I *think* $Compat1x + a modified compat1x.php may solve this:

- set up $Compat1x['/bibtexmarkuprule'] = 'pmwiki equivalent';

- if the page is in bibtex markup, run the converter left to
  right when the page is displayed in ?action=browse

- if the page is in wiki markup, run the converter right to
  left when the page is ?action=source for export as bib

Would that (a) work (b) be as easy as I think it is?

Yes, please.

That would make the wikipublisher xml templates less confusing.
Since the .tmpl files contain no html tags, and the opening line
identifies them as xml documents, it will look odd if they 
contain <!--HTMLHeader--> and <!--HTMLFooter--> directives.
