I'm starting to put some options into FOP that are triggered by processing
instructions. My initial thought was use 'fop' as the target.

But then it occurred to me: PI targets can be associated with a URI via a
NOTATION declaration. This is *a lot* like namespaces. Does that mean PI
targets should be arbitrary proxies?

Instead of looking for PIs with the target "fop" should I instead be looking
for PIs with the target which is a NOTATION declared with URI
After all, some other application might use the target "fop" but only mine
would use the NOTATION with URI http://www.jtauber.com/fop/.

What do people think?
