   Server side DTD validation only ?

To me It seems that performing DTD validation on the client and server side
is an unnecessary overhead.   Currently, I am only performing validation
against the DTD on the server side app.  The request and the response are
both validated by the server app by pre-pending the DTD to the XML document
before it is validated.  The text XML data created by the client does not
contain the DTD or an external reference to the DTD. 

1.  Is this the right approach ?

2.  What are the problems I can run into ?
