  4. I added a TEXT attribute to anchor tags. The idea
  is that all <A HREF=...> point to MIME text/* objects. The
  TEXT parameter tells you the subtype, so you don't have
  to zen it from the filename (or so you can override the
  filename.) For example:
  	<A HREF="TheProject.html" TEXT=PLAIN>This is
  		a link to that file treated as a plain text

Is there an SGML reason (apart from a W3 reason) not to also recommend
that we do a
   <A HREF=""
   This is a link to a picture of some fishies.</A>
where the CONTENTTYPE matches the MIME/IANA registry of same?  This
would be a simple enough way to stick in links to graphics.
