Unfortunately, this is kind of futile. ANT files are only well-formed XML
documents, but not valid (largely due to possible extensions). 

This means that while you CAN make up a DTD to match any given ANT file,
and it can be parsed with a non-validating parser, you can NOT make up a
DTD that covers ALL possible valid (ANTwise) ANT files.
