Namespace names don't have to be dereferenceable:
"http://www.ccil.org/~cowan/labor_yutz" is a perfectly good namespace name,
even though there's nothing there (you'll get an error if you
try to dereference it), because I assigned it and the namespace
names beginning http://www.ccil.org/~cowan" belong to me.
In particular, there is no reason why the referent of the namespace
name should be a DTD.
