No idea. The need exists though:

This is a natural following step. Does Org need to standardize styles?
Or is it up to each citation back-end to handle this? 

My naive thinking was to allow something like:

   #+bibliography: "something.bib" :style author-year

but maybe the "style" part is too citation back-end dependant, and
should not be standardized.

I would be nice, however, to standardize two keywords: one to define
a bibliography, and another one to insert it in a document, upon export.

Suggestions welcome!

Yes, basically, the parser returns, e.g., '(:style "y"). It is up to the
citation back-end to interpret, or not, that :style attribute. If it
ignores it, the citation effectively becomes equivalent to '(:style
nil), i.e., "cite:". Is that clearer?

Yes, and a "t-styled" citation would be:


Barring the prefix, the syntax of the citation does not change wrt to
"wip-cite" branch. However, this is enough to be slightly incompatible,
hence the "wip".

How does that sound?
