Neither the original nor the new version of the namespaces spec was
designed to deal with DTD composition. It is possible to write a DTD
that deals with specific, constrained uses of namespaces (and even
hides the namespace machinery in #FIXED attribute values), but it is
not possible to combine DTD fragments arbitrarily.
