The first iteration of the idea behind the request is this style selection UI:


So the idea is to present a preview of the style/variant output when
selecting the style.


/          (Doe, 2019)

... or maybe even multiple columns:

/          (Doe, 2019)       \citep

I'm thinking the best way to build this UI is to iterate through
org-cite-support-styles, and run at least the default export processes
to create that preview annotation,

As my thinking has evolved (and there's been a lot of discussion on
this the past week), I see two options:

1. Generate the previews from the citations at point. This was the
idea that promoted the suggestion here, since I can't get access to
that citation data if I use org-cite-make-insert-processor.

2. Instead, have a standardized example record just for the preview.
With this approach, the citation context isn't relevant.

As to your question, do any style UIs currently allow you to select a
style on a new citation before selecting the keys?
