Blimey, this is a good idea...
But it would require fast and consistent work. Also, I think this is
something that should be taken up by a W3C WG, rather than a humble DEV
mailing list. FWIW, I believe that this is a good aproach, and would itself
rely on namespaces (quite bizarre), but I don't seriously think it will
ever come to fruition. I suppose you are aiming at something like:-
<title>Namespace Schema for: MyLang</title>
<link rel="schema" ns:type="syntactic schema" xlink:href="schema.xsd" />
<link rel="schema" ns:type="presentational" xlink:href="present.xsl" />
<p>My lang has an <a href="[...]">XML Schema</a> and a [...]</p>
<div>By <a href="mailto:[...]
