There's the suggestion in the XML spec that notations be used, e.g.
<!NOTATION something SYSTEM "http://foobar.inc/pi/somePI">
<?something ... ?>
would be equivalent to
<!NOTATION blah SYSTEM "http://foobar.inc/pi/somePI">
<?blah ... ?>
Now, I'm not sure I like that approach, but it does provide a clear
way to associate a managed namespace with PI names.
One problem with that approach: the W3C hasn't used it yet, it's
been looking to reserve PI target names. Of course, there are also
folk in the W3C on a jihad against PIs and other things which are
not compatible with most HTML parsers, so I'm not sure that's the
