This is easily accomplished with an external entity:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8">
<!DOCTYPE ERRORS SYSTEM "errors.dtd" [
  <!ENTITY errlog SYSTEM "errors.xml">

In-progress specifications like XInclude or XLink may eventually provide
other ways of doing this, but for now entity inclusion is standard.
