XML Media Types,  RFC 3023 [1], mentions XPointer as one possibility for
fragment identification, but that is not currently required.

If XPointer requires PSVI support (my reading of [2], at least when a
document references a schema), then I think it will be a very hard sell
to require XPointer conformance for those media types.

It might be sensible if a bit odd to create application/psvi or somesuch
for applications of XML which rely on the PSVI, but that's just one
