Should we enable support for sharing our questions and answers via BibTeX, amsrefs citations?

Here's how it looks on mathoverflow:

citations step 1

citations step 2

    I don't expect our posts to be cited heavily in academic works, we're really more of a popular science site. I'd really like some support for the opposite (citing scientific journals in our posts here), but I don't think we need the ability to cite our own posts.

The site has an express policy of "no original research".

As such, as Fabian's comment noted, I don't think any scientific publication would have a need to cite material from here, as opposed to whatever papers the answers here are citing directly.
