I'm not sure I get what you mean with this solution. 
I can envision "hey, he askes about nuke, megaton and destruction,
let's only look for atomic.dtd pages". So, the search engine first
guesses some possible nice DTD's and then searches in conforming
pages. The problem is that much general info will be made with, say,
the docbook dtd... Nothing special about that, only a general book

Could you explain what you *do* mean?
