I thought about it too, and have second-thought too, but of slightly 
different nature ;-)

What about doing (I propose myself for the job :-) a thing similar to 
the one done with skins?

I mean, we have skinpacks now, we can have DTD packs. Each DTD pack 
contains the DTDs and the stylesheets that Forrest needs to transform 
the source format to the documentDTD format (adaptor).

How to make the Forrest sitemap use them? Simple, we make an action or 
something that automatically maps DTDs to these adapter stylesheets.


   <public publicId="-//APACHE//DTD Changes V1.2//EN"

Will use for this stylesheet:


As for the download and install I can use exactly the same scripts we 
use for skins with some adjustments (to se what used DTDs are needed to 
be downloaded).

How does this sound?
