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

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

"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.)
