Thanks for all your kind words.  All the better, your queries are
easily answered:

1) <target-element/>

The August 7th draft of XML-lang introduced the use of NET for
contingently, as well as declared, empty elements.  Until the NetSGML
TC is passed, use of this feature will produce XML documents which are
NOT valid SGML.

2) The DTD

The DTD in the appendix was simply intended to clarify a few points
about the structure of patterns and actions.  We should have been
clearer that it is NOT a constitutive part of the proposal.  A more
complete (and XML conformant) DTD should be forthcoming soon.
