Agreed. I introduced yet another syntax change in "wip-cite" branch.

Now there are two separate objects "citation" and "citation-reference".
So the following multicite 

  [cite:prefix; pre @a post; @b]

is parsed like

  (citation (:prefix "prefix" :parenthetical nil) 
   (citation-reference (:key "a" :prefix "pre" :suffix "post"))
   (citation-reference (:key "b")))

The annoying thing is about bare-keys. When on a bare @key,
`org-element-context' cannot grap the citation, only the reference.
I don't think it is an issue for now.
