>To start with, we need a hub document -- RDF would do:

 I floated a proposal for this a month ago: see
"DrLove: Document Resource Locations (On Valid Elements)".

A general purpose mechanism would be so useful for many kinds of
bundling: it would allow a Macitosh like resource fork (Mac files are
divided into two parts: data and resource forks). This would allow
bundling of icons and many other neat things. There are many things that
belong to processing documents, but perhaps not the document itself:
hyphenation dictionaries, etc.  It would be best to be able to download
these on demand, not all at once. (RDF or XLink could be used. DrLove
uses RDF like Dave's suggestion.) There are a couple of
internationalization issues that are not really solvable without such a
mechanism (in particular, representation of non-standard or
newly-standardized characters).
