I'm sorry, I missunderstood your previous mail.

My idea is uses NOTATION as second purpose.

No no, I don't want to refer in document. I want to refer from DTD.
Many of DSSSL style-sheet will be depend on DTD, I think. I want to
put style-sheet entity declearation on DTD.

About well-formed XML document which has no DTD, it is not so bad
that such document has style-sheet or pointer to style-sheet for
portability, I think.

I think PI is not good solution. When I write style-sheet as PI,
I can only one style-sheet type. And since PI has no attribute or
notation, application can't recognize notaion of PI.
