I guess I have my example for MT Confidence now.

URL-only seems like a nice solution then :)

Indeed. Just to make it crystal clear. URL approach would mean that instead of pointing to structure like:

<its:toolInfo xml:id="T2" dataCategory="MTConfidence">
  <its:toolName>myMT</its:toolName>
  <its:toolVersion>456</its:toolVersion>
  <its:toolValue>FR-to-EN-General</its:toolValue>
 <its:toolInfo>

which can be in the same file or in external file, you would encode everything into single URL:

its:toolsRef="MTConfidence|http://mymt.org/toolinfo?version=456&value=FR-to-EN-General"

URL "http://mymt.org/toolinfo?version=456&value=FR-to-EN-General" is not meant to be dereferenced. There will be no resource at this URL it is just way how to encode all necessary data into one string.

Such approach is not uncommon. For example XQuery/XSLT uses this for defining collations where each implementations provides differents parameters for initializing collation.
