returns first (canonical) name when metaparameter is assigned a table of names
returns name when metaparameter is assigned a single name
returns empty string when metaparameter name not found in alias_src{}, id_src{}, or id_src[meta].custom_access

metaparameter <metaparam> is the key in Module:Citation/CS1 aliases{} table or id_handlers{} table.  Because access-icon
don't have <metaparam> keys, per se, we create pseudo <metaparam> keys by appending 'access' to the identifier <metaparam>:
	the <metaparam> for |doi-access= is, for the purposes of this function, DOIaccess, etc

Some lists of aliases might be better served when a particular alias is identified as the canonical alias for a 
particular use case.  If, for example, <metaparam> Perodical lists:
	'journal', 'magazine', 'newspaper', 'periodical', 'website', 'work'
that order works fine for {{cite journal}} documentation but doesn't work so well for {{cite magazine}}, {{cite news}},
or {{cite web}}.  So, for using this function to document {{cite magazine}} the returned value should be the
parameter best suited for that template so we can specify magazine in the override (frame.args[2])

While for this function, it would be just as simple to not use the function, this mechanism is implemented here 
to match similar functionality in alias_names_get() (there are slight differences)
	<override> must exist in the alias list
	does not apply to the access icon parameters (ignored - these have no aliases)

(and which would be best for {{cite news}}? |newspaper= or |work=? can't solve all of the worlds problems at once).

output format is controlled by |format=
	plain - renders in plain text in a <span> tag; may have id attribute
	para - renders as it would in {{para|<param>}}
