I've been authoring some DTDs, and I am growing to like them!
(An aquired taste?)

One thing missing from the syntax of ATTLIST declarations is support for
comments. This would have provided helpful clues if updating old schemas at
some time in the future.

Has this been a case of simplicity being given preference over readiblity
Or is there an historical reason behind the lack of such provisions?
