I think we can version DTDs to any degree of silliness as long as we
update the catalog:

PUBLIC "-//APACHE//DTD Documentation V1.0//EN" "dtd/document-v10.dtd"
PUBLIC "-//APACHE//DTD Documentation V1.1//EN" "dtd/document-v113.dtd"
PUBLIC "-//APACHE//DTD Documentation V1.1.1//EN" "dtd/document-v111.dtd"
PUBLIC "-//APACHE//DTD Documentation V1.1.2//EN" "dtd/document-v112.dtd"
PUBLIC "-//APACHE//DTD Documentation V1.1.3//EN" "dtd/document-v113.dtd"
