Some possible reasons:

- we are proposing to adopt bibtex markup so there is a case for
  making this explicit

- terse markup is better than verbose markup, so the markup doesn't
  get in the way of the content (as long as the meaning is clear)

- what about (:references:) as an alternative?

But mostly, I haven't really thought about what markup to use yet,
and was just using (:bibtex:) as an illustration...

Would bib(liography)? be acceptable??
