I was thinking along similar lines, too.  As indeed Paul Grosso observed
earlier there are elements of this that fit with the "XML Packaging"

Maybe all that's needed is a way (PI or attribute) for a document
instance to indicate a relevant resource bundle (or whatever it gets
called...) -- or maybe documents can incorporate inline aspects from the
resource vocabulary.

Either way, I'm enormously happy to see this activity underway.
