Yes. The XML Rec specifically allows you to create NOTATION declarations
that map the targets of PIs to URIs or FPIs, thus:
<DOCTYPE whatever [
<!NOTATION myapp SYSTEM
<?myapp do something?>
Then your application can match not on the name, which can be
different in different documents, but on the consistent and unique URI.
