This is a 'best practices' question.

Say I'm developing XML standards for widespread use across the Internet, in
systems I don't control.

Would it make sense for me to:

1) Deprecate the use of public identifiers (don't provide them, don't
recommend their use)

2) Recommend the use of URNs as SystemLiterals in the SYSTEM part of the
DOCTYPE declaration, in addition to URNs for namespaces, XML and RDF schema
identifiers, without comment on whether these resources make Infoset

3) Create a registry listing those URNs.

If your answer is no, what would you suggest?
