"as per the sources cited here" is exactly the way to do it-- the
usual academic equivalent is "per X, and the references cited
therein". Something should certainly be stated, not just be implied.
This might be a good way of documenting lists, where the reasons for
the individual items are in the articles on the items.

Of course! What's unfortunate is that some
people are more comfortable
with hard rules than with reasonableness. There are times when citing
another Wikipedia article is perfectly appropriate.
Citing a particular revision, perhaps - the live article is too moving
a target. And it should only be done as a 'per the sources cited
here' way - the Wikipedia article itself is not the reliable source,
but perhaps it might be worthwhile on occasion to refer to the set of
references in an article collectively.
