Where would I start to look (i.e., which package) if I were wishing to
help along on the development of this?

That is correct. OGR's GML reader is aimed at GML2.

I have done some experimental work on a reader for NAS format, a german
GML3 profile, and found I had to do quite a bit of work.  At some point
I expect that to roll into GDAL and I'll try to back port some of the
work into the generic GML reader.
