Trang rocks, but the models used for modularization in RNG and WXS are different 
enough that even it can't seem to maintain authorial intent in the translation. 
The SVG schema needs to be modularised as the XHTML schema is.

However it *may* be possible to still do something smart in this area to also 
have some RNG without doubling maintenance costs. I've been having vague ideas 
in the back of my mind for a while, hopefully they'll take shape as something 
useful :)
