I always feel you should stick to the standard DTD references and not use 
local copies. I think the ejbjar approach (mapping the descriptor to a local 
resource) is a better approach. It keeps the mapping out of your source and 
in your build environment.

By sticking to the correct descriptors, you won't have problems when your 
code has to built in some other environment. Also, I guess there may be 
issues with some tools that process the descriptors and attempt to recognize 
the descriptor based on its DTD ref.
