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.

Best Regards,
