[cddlm] Testing parsing with the deployment API

I've been thinking about how to add a testing operation to the
deployment API; a way to get at the fully parsed document.
How about we have the option of a new property in a new namespace
If implemented, this read only resource property would contain the
entirety of the parsed document, set during the initialize() operation.
Implementations must list the qname for this in their
ManagementCapabilities operation, plus, if they want to be OGSA-BPI
compliant, in that thing that that spec asks for.
The nice thing about this approach is that as well as adding no new
operations to the API, it lets anyone working with a deployment find out
what it was that was actually instantiated. So it will benefit users as
well as CDL implementors.
Oh, and it needs no extra WSDL, just some XSD work.
