Hi Henri,

eprint and archivePrefix are in no ways standard to bibtex.

But really, an eprint is NOT an *article* until it gets published, and
then it should be cited as an article and not as a preprint.

What you are looking for is a way to attach a label "arXiv:1607.04624"
to the url = {http://arxiv.org/abs/1607.04624}, similarly to how a doi
is handled.

I can easily add the field arxiv to the "aps" rendering as it is

I can also add the field eprint (to be combined with the url field) as
  eprint = {arxiv:1607.04624},
  url = {http://arxiv.org/abs/1607.04624},
as this use can be pretty general. But I do *not* like the
archivePrefix use of biblatex as it is a good example of bloat and
feature creep.

So I will modify the aps specifications to be used as

    title = {Normal State of the Metallic Hydrogen Sulfide},
    author = {Kudryashov, Nikolay A. and Kutukov, Alexander A. and
    Mazur, Evgeny A.},
    year = {2016},
    eprint = {arxiv:1607.04624},
    url = {http://arxiv.org/abs/1607.04624},
