Yep, it's been noodling around in my subconcious for a few weeks now. I
think we can accomplish a lot without even having to change the DTD, the
<package> element already supports much of what I want to do.
I suspect it will be at least a few weeks more before I start playing
with this, and maybe longer. I believe it's probably version 2.0
material, and as such there's quite a bit more than can be done before
then to improve nALFS.
