Subject Extending DTD catalog in plugins

full Docbook plugin, as a result there was a long discussion (which gets 
interesting from onwards).

The end result of this discussion was:

Since I am not very clued in with catalogs and their use I have no 
opinion on this thread, but I do need to implement something. So, if 
someone has the time (and the wine) to design a solution for *exactly* 
the problem described in the above thread then I will implement it 
(remember Sean does make a proposal that is discussed without a 
conclusion, so this may be a shorter job than you think).
