You might check out RELAX Core (the original ISO TR) and RELAX

You might want to take a look at Dynamic Delegation Discovery System

There has been some discussion

Good to hear that it's a good start.  Since I rarely care about
"solutions for the entire set of problems" once we're past the
syntactical foundations of markup, that seems okay to me.
