No, but as long as namespaces not part of the recommendation, as DTD is a viable
mechanism. As soon as they are part of the recommendation, a DTD is potentially
incapable of dealing with "vanilla" v1.1 documents. I would have a hard time justifying
keeping DTDs under those circumstances.

I can't imagine that they do, but that's not the issue, I don't think.
