Okay, I've implemented a different approach.  You can now cycle through
reference macros defined through styles in reftex-ref-style-alist' and
activated by reftex-ref-style-active-list' by typing v' (forward) or
V' (backward) respectively in the buffer where you select a label.  In
addition you can switch between macros referencing numbers (e.g. \ref)
and pages (e.g. \pageref) by typing p'.

A few enhancements might follow:

* It probably makes sense to couple the mechanism with AUCTeX's style
system and provide only macros for selection which are available

* The original implementation provided a way to control if the \vref and
\fref macros should be applied to certain label types only
(cf. reftex-vref-is-default' and reftex-fref-is-default').  This was
a somewhat obscure feature and I don't know if it was widely used.  If
it was not, I'd rather leave this out.

* Perhaps a way to insert starred versions of reference macros would be
nice.

* Of course the manual will be updated once the implementation will be
finished.

Enjoy.
