Are you (and Elliotte Harold?) saying that if the J2ME folks were to change 
the spec and allow DOCTYPE declarations, but not implement all the 
productions required to process an internal subset, then the J2ME "XML" 
processor would be much more suitable even if it is not a fully conformant 
XML 1.x implementation?  I'll guess that they would find that a 
constructive suggestion.  It would seem to meet their needs for a minimal 
footprint while meeting the community's need to process "real" XML 
documents on J2ME environments.  They were worried about problems where 
failing to choke on DOCTYPE declarations would raise expectations that 
entities are declared, default attribute values set, and so on, but (on 
reflection, wearing my potential J2ME user hat) I would prefer that to 
rejecting all XHTML documents!
