It's just struck me that using a PI in this way is really quite
odd in the context of wanting to use namespace URIs for catalog
Let's suppose that we quite often want to do catalog redirection.

<!-- namespace URI not used for retrieval because of
preceeding redirect -->
But then it's very hard to see how that's better than,
<!-- namespace URI *never* used for retrieval -->
In other words, the more useful (and used) a catalog redirect
