At that point, it may be that the filters will have to be adapted to specific processors in contrived ways. This of course will be much dependent on the choice of processors chosen to be supported by Org. Some other groups may decide to implement, for example, the JabRef #+cite_export (this does not imply that JabRef is a citation processor, it's just a colourful example).

If the bibliography-style is important for the user and processor, may be default values can be provided; and let the user read some documentation option which are needed to run her particular processor (provided by them, not necessarily Org). Again, being completely honest, I don't think that you should put a dummy (like me) making these very relevant decisions.

Joining the discussion I seem to have missed before (because I was
using a less org-ish solution).
My scenario: BEAMER and LATEX are my main targets, both with BIBLATEX
and biber as backend. Works nicely, and I can include a bibliography
at the end of my presentations, which is nice for lectures.
I'm more interested in the 'processor' part, because the default
bibliography and citation style fit me. However, I think that
something like:

#+cite_export: processor bibliography-style citation-style :options

as a generalised form (for the shortened version with default styles):

#+cite_export: processor :options opt1=val1,opt2=val2,...

would be expressive enough.

Best, /PA
