  I think this is a good use case for the EXPath Packaging
System.  For now it is able to package standard files of XSLT,
XQuery, XProc, NVDL, XML Schema, Relax NG, etc.  And it is
extensible to package say, extensions for Saxon written in Java
(I get this example because it is actually implemented, but this
is usable by other processors too of course).
