    One can use XML Catalog to provide local 'resolution' of 
    URIs, such that a local user with or without web access can 
    provide any RDDL document for any namespace they might 
    choose (or any other document for any other URI for that matter).

Agreed Jonathan. But how many non-geeks comprehend catalog use?
How many geeks have even heard of catalogs?
I know mine isn't up to date. Its a way round the problem for
some applications.
  I would hate XML and its applications to become a tool
for connected users only.
