So we need one keyword to designate the bibliographic data file, and
another where to place the formatted output.

Indeed, this is a good summary, and also a feature often requested on
the Zotero forums.

I think the way biblatex handles this is general, based on reading the
docs, is good.

It'd be nice to have, but maybe not essential for a first step?
