Are they using internal DTD subsets or just referencing external DTD
entities? If the latter, perhaps some sort of XLink based annotation that
would let the recipient fetch the DTD separately (and add the DOCTYPE back
into the document, if needed). If using SOAP With Attachments, the DTD could
even be included as an attachment and referenced via a "cid:"; href.
