I have been using Anderson's implementation in Common Lisp for this - 
but I guess if you are not a Lisp programmer this may not help! But 
it does give a modifiable data structure for the DTD which allows 
program manipulation.

I understand that  DOM3 will address this and give a procedural 
interface into the DTD. It would be useful as you say.
