I see no problems in having separate CNS files for each conceptual
schema. It doesn't break anything - actually TAPIR capabilities
responses can even advertise more than one CNS.
In principle the new CNS handler for TapirLink could just fetch the
first conceptual schema from the file. Otherwise we would need to
either change the interface or create parameters to the handler.
Maybe the main CNS file that we have now for DarwinCore and ABCD
versions could also be separated into different files... (Markus?)
Perhaps there could be other advantages in doing that.
