> I propose: Root (Useful | NotUseful) "NotUseful".
I would prefer
Root (Useful | NotUseful) #IMPLIED
Most DTDs have a number of useful potential roots and a number of
not-so-useful ones. By providing a default value one way or the
other, you force me to override it on a substantial portion of my
Another option is to just say that this is a suggested root:
Root (Suggested) #IMPLIED
For DocBook, for instance, there are many elements useful as roots,
but I might only put Root="Suggested" on <book>'s declaration.
