You may be right.

oc-csl-activate uses org-cite-csl--fallback-style-file for the preview
style, but also has a org-cite-csl-activate-use-document-style defcustom to
optionally override that. A LaTeX preview wouldn't need this.

Seems more generally a user would need to be able to specify what the
export target is.

But I guess per your point, one could do configuration by simply selecting
whatever preferred activate processor. So, for example, we could have one
for latex preview.
