No, as I said, you fake a declaration for undeclared elements.
Something equivalent to <!ELEMENT foo ANY>.  If you aren't doing any
kind of validation, it can just be a list of element names that
you've seen.

I doubt that it would make much difference.  Looking up the name is
likely to take longer than checking that the characters are all name
