With Elisp, this isn't super-difficult to do (God
willing).

There is already `bibtex-next-field'. Then get the
data preferrable with a built-in, otherwise use
`thing-at-point' or something to that end. Oh, and the
"data" here is the field name, not the field data!
Then use `member' and see if that data is in your
variable of desired fields. If it isn't, kill with
`bibtex-kill-field'. After that/otherwise loop the
whole thing.
