VisualEditor: Reference should use system messages to work out their rendering style (e.g. 1.0, 1.1 / a,b,c)
OpenPublic

Description

There are a couple of ways to configure references to display differently:

we should access these so the rendering in edit mode is consistent with the that in read mode.

I think that this is the same problem:

Footnotes created with the ref group <ref group=lower-alpha> are displayed in the saved page as [a], [b], etc. If you open them in VisualEditor, they display (while editing) as [lower-alpha 1], [lower-alpha 2], etc. instead of [a], [b], etc.
