Yes, there are things in the works.

One is to make it possible to have DTD packages to install 
automatically. The idea is that for a new document format we need a DTD 
and a stylesheet to transform to XDOC.

The other is to have a sourcemap that specifies where to find the sources.

Finally, if the above two are not sufficient, we will see to add 
sitemaps like that matcher does.
