We need to have at least two version, because DTDs are a bonus for 
editors, and we need something else for multi-namespace validation.

What do you suggest we do? I thought that we shouold keep one version 
hand-written and the other automatically converted. In this way we have 
schemas for normal validation and automatically-generated DTDs for 
editors and for people using single-namespace validation.
