I think some people felt that have just publicIDs would cause problems
because there was no widespread resolution mechanism deployed on the Web[1].
As XML 1.0 stands, people can use publicIDs if they want to but must provide
a sysID fall-back.


[1] of course, my DELEGATE extension to catalogs was designed to provide
exactly such a mechanism.
