What it says on the tin; the addition of a reference is not reflected in an
update to {{reflist}} or <references/> or whathaveyou.

I can't replicate the bug as described, but re-purposing to be about our desire to update fake reference lists inside templates on edit, rather than the current unhelpful not-updated-'til-page-save issue.

Note that we can't currently see a way to do this without round-tripping the entire page, which would be a sub-optimal solution, to put it mildly.

So to clarify, it is a known bug that adding references will display the updated reference list when the <references /> tag is used in the article, but not when the {{reflist}} template is used?
