Do you mean that instead of using:

<?XSchema SYSTEM="foo.xsc" ?>

we should use something like:

<foo XSchemaSystem="foo.xsc">

A good idea, but I don't think it will work for us.  We accept an arbitrary 
number of XSchema PI's, so there is no way to name the attributes.

I don't understand what you mean.  A PI has a target by definition, but I don't 
know how this indicates syntax.
