It doesn't work. I could change my catalog and make it work, but I would 
be happy if I could simply pass the FPI to xmllint. My catalog maps FPIs 
to local DTDs, I don't really want to be required to add mappings for 
all the canonical DTD URLs.

  This is so incredibly fragile !

I know that you don't want to add many more options to xmllint, but the 
functionality behind the suggested feature is already implemented; the 
option could be added easily.

  Not arguing about that. I commited this in CVS, but I really don't suggest
people rely on FPI for XML processing. URL are mandatory for XML, that's
the only reliable way to address XML resources.
