You need to use "basic" processor for activation. It only supports
".bib" files.

I sent a POC, but I didn't implement it in "oc-basic", tho.

"oc-csl" could also handle the "activate" capacity. So could Org Ref.

You can only have one "activate" processor at a time. However, that
processor may itself be extensible.
