I think the main reasons (they work in concert) that the DTD mechanism is
inadequate are:

1) external DTDs are convenient, but there's no guarantee they'll be

2) internal DTDs are inconvenient, and XSLT provides no way to regenerate
   them after a transformation.

English-to-Russian-to-English mangling thereof: "Only on Barrayar you risk to
lose support instead of finding it when you threat with the charged weapon."
