Is this thread on its way to reinventing NOTATION 
and SUBDOC without the <!DOCTYPE ?

I don't think it's as clear cut as this. Imagine that your application, for 
whatever reason, wants to package several XML documents together into one 
overall document. You might then want to write:

<DocSet rddl:doctype="http://whatever/DocSet";>
    <doc1 rddl:doctype="http://whatever/doctype1";>
    <doc2 rddl:doctype="http://whatever/doctype2";>

I.e. the document type wants to be associated with a whole (sub)tree of an 
XML document, and not just the document as a whole.

Note that this is not the same thing as saying that the document type is 
implied by an element type because, for example, the contents of some 
<html> elements will be plain old documentation, and others will be RDDL 
resource directories.
