How do you make multiple PEM's in that file possible (so someone can have multiple files) 
What is the mime type one should use?
How does one link to another file? (after all it's the hyperdata we are after)

Those are not questions meant to put a stop to this exploration. Just it would be good to come up with some ideas there.

Perhaps you can write a small proposal on how to do this.
