            Bug ID: 61777
           Summary: VisualEditor:  Make references visible for re-use when
                    they're 'hidden' inside templates, e.g., list-defined
                    refs in the reflist template

This is related to Bug 57209.

List-defined references (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:LDR#WP:LDR)
are listed in the {{reflist}} template rather than in the regular text of the
page. References that are defined inside the {{reflist}} are not visible when
you try to re-use an existing reference.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a page that uses list-defined references with the {{reflist}} template
(rather than <references></ref>).

2. Go to Insert > Reference to add a new reference.  Click "Re-use existing
reference".

3. Discover that the numbers ("[1]") and ref names are visible, but the
contents are not.

This problem does not exist if the non-template method is used.  This problem
also exists for refs inside blockquotes, infoboxes, and other templates.
