Yes, I suggested this previously [1]. Basically the arcrole becomes the NS-URI of
the format generated by the transform.
The additional benefit of identifying the output using the NS-URI is one can
piece together transformation pipelines by recursively investigating the RDDL
documents at each URI.
I don't think Jonathan put this into the spec, but I notice that number of
the examples in the spec (do a View Source) follow this guideline.

Subject: RDDL and XSLT

I've been wondering about how one could define a standard set of transformation rules for a XML vocabulary, and thought RDDL might be the solution but the specification is not very informative. In terms of an application accessing a XML file in some proprietary format, the question is how can an application determine how we can transform this file into a format that can be presented to the user e.g. XHTML. RDDL could allow that information to be accessible from the namespace URI. I envisage this form of usage:

<rddl:resource  xlink:role="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
        xlink:arcrole="... namespace URI of XSLT output eg XHTML ..."
        xlink:href=" ... " />

 This could be a standard way for authors and applications alike to locate required XSLT resources. Comments?
