This is good, but I think you should not disallow packing the manifest and
data together. That was the advantage of the proposal I helped Don with.
It allowed mixed push and pull modes (and yes, we also allowed recursion).

As I said, I have prototyped such a scheme using the TR9401 catalog syntax
(and found lot's of bugs in it's grammar in the process), and I most
*would* like to see something similar in XML + XLink + XPointer.
