Agreed. My impression is that the nitty-gritty of associating FPIs/URLs,
etc with code is:
	- not terrifyingly difficult (like many others I have built SGML catalog
	- unlikely to come directly out of W3C efforts
in which case it could be an excellent thing for XML-DEV to run with. The
important thing is to agree communally on how to do it. I would see this as
a logica next step after XSchema. 
	I hope my mail didn't seem negative - I'm delighted to use NOTATION IFF:
	- other people are keen on using it
	- we agree on a software spec
	- there is a communal implementation
