This is good, but I think you should not disallow packing the manifest and the 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 certainly *would* like to see something similar in XML + XLink + XPointer.
