  Yes, but my point is that I think this URI is wrong, as the
DTD tells us that:

    #  <!DOCTYPE spec PUBLIC
    #       "-//W3C//DTD Specification V2.10//EN"
    #       "http://www.w3.org/2002/xmlspec/dtd/2.10/xmlspec.dtd">

  So I guess the URI 2002 (as opposed to 1998 that is used in
oXygen) is the correct one, isn't it?

  Yep, but I wonder if a framework shouldn't provide it out
of the box.  Writing a driver stylesheet is very common (a
stylesheet module that imports the original one to override
some templates or parameters.)  And in that case, the import
URI cannot use ${frameworks}.
