The problem is that not everything that package authors needs can be
access without sometimes using internals. 

In this case (as far as I can see) the style is trying to test for
the backend driver (and to call a sourcemap if biber is used). 

Imho this is something packages should be able to do and so there
should be a reliable and documented method for package authors.
