It obviously can be quite a simple thing, and obviously an implementation-neutral way of doing it, with maybe an agreed-upon way of registering new fields, would be cool.

No, IMHO.

then fine, but not as part of the fo 'DTD' please.

I do that sort of thing by adding <xsl:comment> to the stylesheet.
