dblatex does well with citations.  As for the reference lists, it looks 
like RefDB outputs as BibTeX as well.  We use dblatex +XeLaTeX with 
BibTeX for the references (rather than DocBook entries), and the ff. 
processing instruction:
  <?bibtex bibfiles="References" bibstyle="sp" mode="all"?>
(which pulls in a BibTeX file References.bib).  Then we can take 
advantage of the diversity of LaTeX packages for formatting the 
bibliography.  The result is more than adequate for our purposes.  The 
one drawback might be that BibTeX doesn't handle Unicode sorts well, 
although I think that only bites you if you have non-Roman scripts in 
some of your authors' names.  (It seems to handle accented Roman scripts 
IIRC, but I haven't tested this thoroughly.)
