The easy workaround that I see is to add the new tag to the
DTD with <!ELEMENT newtag ANY>
PS. However, I still think that if <!ELEMENT newtag ANY> would push
parser not to check for existance of the *clilds* definitions in the DTD,
but would realy mean 'anything that is well-formed is OK' it would
make our lifes easier without introducing any ( even hypotetical)
trouble. ANY is a hack anyway.
