It can be very hard in this age of open systems and
guarantees for interoperability to determine the
boundary of an application. If the WWW is an application
and the Internet is the hosting system, what are
the boundaries of the WWW?

Blecch. Assuming you believe that this is a good idea, stick it
in a namespaced tribute required to be on the root element. Then
you can get at it through all the existing APIs and address it
with XPath and so on.
PIs are for application-specific processing IMHO. This is not
application-specific at all. -Tim
