Many citations use specific bolding and italics to indicate specific information, such as which text is title, which text is ISSN, and so on.

I am not aware of a plan to introduce a module of ARIA for citations.

My point is that from an accessibility point of view, the components of a citation are generally already known; the challenge is getting them from JATS to HTML.

Why would one care from an accessibility point of view?

A sighted user looking at a print version (a electronic version rendered on some screen) of a citation doesn't have that granular information provided as part of the visual rendering.
