Speaking as a member of the DOM WG:  Don't read too much into this. The
fact that DTDs have not been included to date merely means that we haven't
been willing to address them until we had a better understanding of how
they do or don't interact with XML Schemas, since if at all possible we
want to provide a single API to access both (many? all?) content model
languages. DOM Level 3 is finally starting to address this issue, though
there are still some open questions.

I can't speak for Infoset. But again, I'd beware of confusing "we haven't
done it yet" and "we don't think it should be done."
