I disagree. pandoc supports conversion to and from org-mode. Making pandoc a requirement will enable other useful features (e.g., "Import documents from...", alternative pandoc-based exporters etc. IMO pandoc is easy on Windows and OSX. It is easy on some Linux distros but not all. I use Arch LInux, where getting pandoc requires some work, but I think that is an issue that the Linux distros need to work out. In short, pandoc is extremely useful for org-mode users, and not only for citations. I think pandoc is the way to go.
