The configuration stuff is definitely necessary.

Many of the resources are probably not necessary.
For example, the document-v*.dtd etc. were needed when
we had the Cocoon documentation packaged with the webapp
and generated by Cocoon. That has all been ripped out
so probably don't need them.

The DTDs started life at Cocoon, then Forrest took over
the maintenance. With the documentation situation that
is mentioned above, we did need to keep these synchronised.

Perhaps better to remove the stuff that we don't need.
I would suggest to leave the ISO*.pen entity sets
which are often needed by applications.

The entities/w3c/svg*.dtd might be needed, i don't know.

The entities/web-app_2_3.dtd might be needed.

The entities/catalog-demo/ is needed by some of
the core samples.
