It would be a nice capability though.

I agree, we still need to ship a core set of DTDs and other schemas.
At some stage we will have xhtml2 stuff too.

However, we need to draw a line somewhere and having DocBook 4.1.2
(in addition to DocBook 4.2) is getting close to it. So this
capability could be provided so that projects can define and get
whatever they need.

Actually my enthusiasm is starting to waver as i write. This task
could get rather complex. Our other possibility is to just enhance
our documentation. We already describe how to configure their
own stuff.
