I am not happy either. I have been trying to reduce the use
of that XSLT document() function, but still got some way to go.

Really the DTD does not do much validation anyway, as everything
is optional. The only benefit that i see is that the DTD enables
some editors to give hints about what other elements can be added.

This is just a workaround to get the release out.

It would not be good to have users complain because they
need network access just to run Forrest locally. Also not
a good look for us (supposed xml experts) to hammer the
Apache website for a DTD.

Good to hear. I thought that they were separate issues.
