I've just been looking at the Namespaces WD of 2-Aug-98
and I saw the following:

doctypedecl ::=  '<!DOCTYPE' S QName (S ExternalID)? S? ('[' (markupdecl
| PEReference | S)* ']' S?)? '>' 

I notice that a QName occurs in the definition. Does this mean that a
Namespace which is global for the (presumably valid) document is
declared between the <?xml version="1.0" ?> and the doctype decl.?
