Distinguish between <!DOCTYPE > and validation.  I do *not* agree
that parsing DTD syntax takes up 2/3 of a parser.  On the other hand,
it's reasonable to expect a validating parser to be twice the size
of a non-validating one.  Note that nearly all the existing 
validating parsers parse DTD syntax just fine. -T.
