POV: I'd rather lose namespaces than DTDs.
I seldom aggregate, but I often have to
validate and get consent. Namespaces
don't belong at the lowest level. They
aren't XML; they are URIs.
OTOH: Not broken. Don't fix.
From: Mike Champion [mailto:email@example.com]
It's clear that elements,
attributes, text, and namespaces are more or less universal,
so they belong at the lowest level. DTDs, data types,
content model constraints, etc. all have their uses and
belong in the hierarchy, but not in the base.
