Here's a simpler proposal. Take this:

[1]    document    ::=    prolog element Misc*

And make it:

[1]    document    ::=    prolog (element Misc*)*

This is not straightforwardly SGML compatible, but I think it is 
significantly easier these days to change SGML than it is to change XML. 
  Throw another TC on the fire.
