Precisely. That was the cost of simpler for less
power. SGML was designed for this kind of problem.
However, it also seems to me that the issues of
smaller fielded systems (eg, the problems of IBM,
the problems of smaller language communities) belong
to the international standards organizations. The
W3C recommendations are part of a body of work
for commerce at large. I realize just how fuzzy
and even controversial that position might be,
but Elliotte is asking the right questions with
regards to cost and support.

There wouldn't be anything to do: just write yourself a new SGML
declaration, that's all. It's because the SGMLDECL is
hard-coded in XML that this kind of change control
