I looked into it.  There was some stuff on the DocBook stylesheets provisions 
for bibliographies.  

    Adapting that source code to TEI and a non-technical style manual would 
no doubt be 'fun'.  The DB-DSSSL codebase is big enough that just finding the 
code is a small project in itself.

I didn't find anything obvious on synchronizing citations with entries.

(The TEI spec recommends using id/idrefs for synchronization.
 That no doubt makes programming very easy.
 Of course a important reason for having a computerized database is to not 
have to keep track of @#$% non-mnemonic primary keys...)
