This is an issue for XHTML 2.0 to address. In fact, I suspect it 
does. Such a document would be malformed XML, and rejected by all 
conformant parsers including XHTML parsers.

I suspect most people generating XHTML 2.0 will either use tools that 
automatically insert the right SYSTEM ID for the W3C web site, or 
copy and paste an example that does that.

I guess some people might use relative URLs and forget to put the 
DTDs where they say they did, but that does seem a little picky.
