It doesn't even have to be inconsistent with DTD validation. I 
routinely use XInclude to put together a several hundred page book 
<http://www.ibiblio.org/xml/books/xmljava/> and then reparse the 
result with a DTD to validate it. It's a two-step process instead of 
a one-step process but it works.
