yes, something that would be very useful, especially (but not only) for
RDF application, is URIs that:
- point at elements in the content.xml via their xml:id
- can be dereferenced
- can be used as base URIs

Currently that is not possible:
- the URIs suggested by the ODF specification cannot be dereferenced
- existing URI schemes are not standardized, or otherwise unusable
  + jar: schema is not standardized (but implemented by Mozilla etc.)
  + there is a schema for OOXML packages that AFAIK is restricted
    so it can only be used with OOXML packages
- using fragments could be done by the ODF TC, but has the problem
  that it cannot be used to construct base URIs
