This is probably the single most important reason that let's me hesitate
to switch from SGML to XML. SGML has a nice standard for catalogs, which
SP and psgml understand, so I can use PUBLIC identifiers.

There is a proposal for XML Catalogs, see

Does anybody know if this is considered to become a standard? Are there
any parsers/tools that use it already, or will use it in the future, or
which have come up with even a better solution to this problem?
