You have completely missed the explanation.  You 
cannot include multiple DTDs into a single file. 
You can only create a system whereby multiple 
DTDs can be applied.   Namespaces do not include 
multiple DTDs nor do parameter entities.   You 
can think of namespaces as multiple DTDs, but that 
is not what it is doing.  It is using a prefix 
to disambiguate.  No Zen.  Just XML.

I think you've completely missed the point.  I was asking about the
technical aspects of including multiple DTD's into a single XML file, not
the Zen aspects of how to create multiple DTD's.  We have already settled on
using XHTML as the default namespace and having one or more of our own
namespaces mixed in from different DTD's.
