Yes, there is <footnoteref>.  But isn't it just some particular sort
of <xref> ?  I can easily see in xref processing expectations

  If the cross-referenced element is an Annotation, which is to be
  rendered as a footnote, the Xref is probably to be rendered in the
  same way the primary location of the footnote Annotation is.
