This applies similarly to APIs ... any of the "schema in XML"
proposals work with something like DOM Level 1 Core, but none
of the DTD support works with such an API. If you want to be
writing an editor, you could define your schema framework and
get going right away (unless you wanted to wait for something
more standard) using standard APIs. Not so with DTDs.
