No, that wouldn't work (or if it did, it would be a bit of a hack)
because you can't accurately address class names. The solution I gave
to that was to make class names a list of QNames that resolve to URIs
using an RDF-style concatenation mechanism. They can then be defined
by formats such as RDF.
