Since MODXHTML remains only a Proposed Recommendation perhaps there's
time yet! is apparent that MODXHTML's complexity derives largely from
problems interfacing qnames, either defaulted or prefixed, with DTDs.
Presumably an XHTML XSD won't have these issues, and <plead>perhaps if a
draft XHTML XSD were available we could add it to RDDL's own directory

can't handle the namespaceing mechanisms nor prefixed elements... sigh.
