No.  Macro sets define their own field identifiers and generally
respect the conventions in refer(1) (A = author; T = title, etc).
These, however, are restricted to citing from a relatively
small subset of sources, usually print, and need to be extended.

Only by checking the documentation for a particular macro set can
one be certain of the available identifiers.  In mom, the list of
identifiers is in the html documentation, refer.html.

Hope this helps.
