As for ref and cite, I'd probably mark these up as keyword.control,
where the rest is currently keyword.function (and will be changed to
support.function), so this should give them different styles (at least
when the generic themes break up keyword.control, keyword.storage, and
support (currently keyword.function)).

For bf/it you _could_ make a LaTeX theme with only two settings:
declaration.textbf entity -- bold
declaration.textit entity -- italic

However, it'd probably be a good idea to provide some basic styles for
these cases, so instead we'd mark up the argument as: markup.italic or
markup.bold. These would also be useful for HTML, Markdown, and all the
other humane text/markup systems (including wiki syntaxes a.s.o.).
