Reading the work about cite [1], I have been disturbed by the second sentence :
"This can be a work that is being quoted or referenced in detail (i.e. a
citation), or it can just be a work that is mentioned in passing.".

We should remove this, it's an unnecessary precision that drives people to ask
themselves unnecessary questions.
