I think an optional description *element* at the first position in a
project element's child list would be a valuable addition to the
pseudo-dtd. However, if that is not the common concensus, bear in mind
that you have access to XML comments via the org.w3c.dom.Document and
org.w3c.dom.Comment interfaces. So you could write a documentation
tool that parses Comment nodes much as JavaDoc parses /** */ comments.
