I guess it's a start.  If what I described isn't adequate for all cases, we'd have to look at augmenting it.

I would expect that a generic XML solution would be problematic because of reasons like there being no meaning for frag ids on */xml content, nor any guaranteed compatibility that they map to "id" or "xml:id" on */*+xml content.  But I bet we can probably squeeze out a solution that can meet the needs of most authors without having to boil the ocean.

Can you be more specific about the problems you see with embedded bindings (or anything else for that matter) in this context?

So I thought the same thing more or less. About the media type and  
fragment identifiers. Is that really the only solution?

I suspect you want it to just work for .xml documents as well. For  
example, bindings can be embedded...
