I think this is the only place where I have much difficulty.  The notion
of "internal documents" is interesting, and lets you do a lot of this
more simply, but it's not immediately intuitive.

Once I get past that, my only real question is whether these things need
to be considered separate documents per se, as XPath and XPointer seem
capable of pointing into structures (external parsed entities) with more
than one root element.  Since it's synthetic anyway... but there may be
a good reason for separate "documents" that I'm just not seeing.

urn:oid: is another possibility altogether
