 I'm probably not the only person unable to post to xml-dev.
 Feel free to forward this there if you think it will help :-)

 The W3C Tag has considered the issue of subsets of XML, and made a
 suggestion tht the W3C XML Core WG consider them in more detail.

 For my part I don't like making DOCTYPE an error, as it reduces
 interoperability.  It' slike going back to the SGML days where some
 tools required DOCTYPE in a DTD (although the spec outlowed it) and
 others (correctly) forbade it, so you had to go through hoops to get
 both Arbortext Adept Editor and SoftQuad Author/Editor to share files.

 But maybe it will turn out that there are sufficient reasons.
