Here's what James Clark's plans to do for locating RNG schemas in
nXML: 
	http://groups.yahoo.com/group/emacs-nxml-mode/message/259

The mechanism looks flexible and doesn't appear to be specific to
locating schemas, so perhaps the same format could be used for finding
dispspecs?

Another related read, is:
	http://www.thaiopensource.com/relaxng/design.html#section:17

Quoting from the end of the second paragraph of the above link:
	 ...
	 The problem of associating a schema with a document is really
	 just a special case of the problem of associating processing
	 with a document. What is needed is a solution that can
	 specify a series of processes to be applied to a document.

I'm not sure if this is the general solution he's talking about,
though.
