OK. As far as I am aware, these temporary citations are not really links as such, but that's beside the point. This style of working is available (in OS X) with both EndNote and Bookends in most WP apps. (I'm assuming that you know how BibTeX works and are aware that exactly this style of working is available with a .tex file and e.g. BibDesk.)

I'm still not clear whether you are trying to avoid EndNote and continue using Word or whether you are just looking for a general solution for managing citations and formatting bibliographies in rtf files. If I *had* to work with rtf files in this way *today*, I'd go for Bookends and use it with Mellel. The two together are cheaper than an EndNote 8 upgrade (I think) and both seem like more attractive and safer apps than their counterparts in Word and EndNote.
