I don't think anyone has claimed that.

For two applications to interoperate, they often need to use 
DTDs that are the same or are structurally similar, so that the
data can be mapped (at least one direction).

With very flexible DTDs, like TEI, specifying the DTD might
not guarantee enough structure for some applications (maybe
it always needs an author). That is one reason why people
are working on schemas.
