Thanks, after playing around I see that this works well--in fact, I don't
need the <citation> element (which I showed above wrapping the <biblioref>
element>) at all.  Much cleaner!

I think the 'xrefstyle' attribute on <biblioref> is supposed to be used
for things like where the parens go, or whether things are parenthesized,
etc.  I suppose it's too much to ask that this could be standardized in
DocBook, perhaps along the lines of the LaTeX 'natbib' package--probably
there's just too much variability.  If only everyone did things like me!
