OK, next level: is there a way to parameterize the uri= value to reflect
Oxygen-defined variables?

My goal in this case is to have a catalog used for development purposes
where the uri= value points to developer-specific location (in this case,
transform components provided by a separate project in CVS). Would like to
have the catalog be invariant, with developers configuring it by locally
setting a property.

Is that possible in Oxygen today? For my environment, being able to use
properties set in an Any property file would be ideal, since I'll have to
configure the same property for use by Ant as well.

Note that this is in the context of the standalone Oxygen editor, not the
Eclipse plugin version.
