The issue I see with that is that it would require defining a  
platform, which can get to be somewhat complex (operating system,  
version, intel/ppc, 32/64/128bits, etc.) and if it is going to be of  
any general use then the vocabulary for platform specification needs  
to be specified  i.e. you can't "just" have a platform element or  
attribute, you also need to define its values in such a way that all  
can understand them.

As a result I'd tend to suggest that we punt on this, and people who  
need to have the platform specified can use an extension in their own  
namespace.
