Well, I'm not sure I agree with the assessment that it's geared
towards academic journals... there's been a lot of work towards all
kinds of citations, esp. court cases and whatnot. See the examples:
As far as not including FRBR, BIBO doesn't have to, because the FRBR
vocabs: http://vocab.org/frbr/core.html and
http://vocab.org/frbr/extended.html already do. This way BIBO can
focus on describing citations, FRBR can focus on
work/expression/manifestion/item relationships and other vocabularies
can focus on other attributes (size, location, circ status, whatever).
This is part of the flexibility of RDF, the ability to pick and choose
among schemas to describe resources however you need to.
