Since I'm helping write some of the RESCAP documents I might be
able to tweak them to do what you need. What do you
actually mean by distrubtion/replication? Is it the process
of populating the databases behind a particular RESCAP server?
Is it more along the lines of the "I have a local version of that
XML Schema that I like better" problem?

If its the former then the RESCAP Working Group isn't chartered
to look at that part of the problem. It shouldn't be to hard to
solve though. If its the latter then its more of a question of
which RESCAP server you ask and  what view of the world it has
(essentially the c15n stuff I mentioned before).
