PIs can be addressed with XPath. They can also be retrieved using the DOM or
handled with SAX.

Isn't RDDL optional? That means it's an application-specific decision
whether or not it should do any processing based on the resources in the
associated RDDL directory. By using an attribute, you've put this
application-specific piece of data into the content of the document. That
seems way more intrusive than a simple PI.
