I just noticed some hints of this.  The newest XML Activity page has this
paragraph:

	In September 1999, we begin the third phase, continuing the
	unfinished work from the second phase and introducing a
	Working Group on XML Query and plans for a Working Group on
	XML Packaging.

Also, the new Schema WD[1] gives this as one possible option of locating
schemas:

	The namespace URI of the item to be validated is
	dereferenced and yields a package. A standard property
	of the package tells what kind of package it is and
	hence how to go about getting schema info out of it.
	We anticipate a great range of flexibility in the
	structuring and content of packages: schemas will
	certainly not be the only thing in them. All that
	matters to us is that we can get a schema out of them;
