/ james anderson <email@example.com> was heard to say:
| This is just a side point, but DTD's do contain sufficient information
| to "support namespaces in their full generality". Note please an earlier
| message in this thread (http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200105/msg00112.html).
| It is possible to propagate namespace constraints within a DTD according
| to rules analogous to those which the namespace recommendation specified
| for names within the document entity so long as the same literal
| qualified name does not appear more than once in the same external
| entity. It is conceivable to establish scoping rules which would cover
| those cases as well, but that does not seem necessary.
In fact a simple PI could be added to express the mapping and I think
it could be made to work fairly easily.
