You are right but it makes perfect sense for transitory documents which
exists only while it is moving from one place to another. Ability to
redefine default attribute values should be enough of a benefit I think.

Well, due to possible problems with missing root element's end tag (it ain't
there if the log file is not closed), XLF data is parsed as a well-formed
external entity like below.
<!DOCTYPE xlf [
<!ENTITY logfile SYSTEM "iis-08031998.xlf">

Food for thought.
