Suggest to merge this requirement

"Authors of new SML reference schemes MUST specify whether or not the scheme
satisfies conditions (a) and (b)."

with the 3rd requirement in scheme definition:

"3. An assertion whether the scheme can be used in an SML-IF [SML-IF 1.1]
document to reference documents in the interchange set."

They are essentially about the same condition: URIs/IRIs that contains all the
information.

I had hoped that we didn't need the 3rd requirement, because whether (a) and
(b) are satisfied should be clear from the 2nd requirement in scheme
definition:

"2. The set of rules that, when evaluated, resolve the containing reference to
a set of target element nodes."

But it's now clear that many WG members feel the need to explicitly specify
this requirement. Then maybe we should try to define a term for things that
satisfy (a) and (b), then refer to it from all 3 places:
1. 3rd requirement of scheme definition (section 4.3)
2. target identity (section 4.2.3)
3. (In IF) references that get baseURI/alias treatment (IF section 5.3.3)

Something like "self-contained URI" or "complete URI" or ... (Not good at
coming up with names.)
