Do we need link-catalogs for schemas? (was Re: More namespace s perversion)

Rick -

Is there one "link-catalog" per document, or can I nest and scope them?
I.e. how do you deal with the fragment composition issue?

The kind of thing I am thinking of is this:

<!-- example of a link-catalog -->
    <entry id="lc1" GI="p" namespace="" >
        <description>Links for HTMLs P element type</description>
       <!-- links to schemas -->
        <a href=""
            role="-// XML DTD//EN" />
        <a href=""
            role="-// XSchema//EN" />
        <a href=""
            role="-// DCD//EN" />
        <a href=""
            role="-// RDF Schema//EN" />
        <!-- links to documentation -->
        <a href=""
            role="-//XML-DEV//NOTATION Virtual Hyper Glossary//EN" />
        <a href=""
            role="-//XML-DEV//TEXT English Documentation//EN"/>
        <a href="
            role="-//XML-DEV//TEXT Deusche Erklaerung//DE"/>
        <!-- links to further catalogs -->
        <a href=""
            role="-//XML-DEV//SGML Link Catalog/EN"/>
