As a library cataloguer I would say NO. Data has specific places, and everything goes in a place. If you place data in the wrong place it stays data and rarely becomes information, and can not be shared so it will never become knowledge. You would not decide to put a date in the place field why put citation text in a notes field? Unfortunately FTM forces you to put things in the wrong place to achieve something close to the output you want.
Any historical or research book that does not have footnotes or a least chapter end notes makes its information very inaccessible.
