Yes, especially since you might need to add more than one.

(Why do you say internal subset here? Validation DTDs are external.)

But this might not be known. If you know what your document looks like,
it is known, but you can also define vocabularies from which any element
can be the root (less likely) or from which any element or attribute can
be reused in another vocabulary (much more likely). The only solution
for such vocabularies is to add namespace attribute declarations to all
element type declarations.
