How about a 'relative' local place?

No idea how, but if I could tell the catalog manager that my 'home'
was /user/local/docbook, for instance,
could the manager work from that? something like xml:base for catalogs?

Then all the stylesheet versions could be linked relative to that,
the sgml and xml DTD's and so on.

That would probably be as close to a 'default' catalog as is reasonable
without raising hackles.
