I suppose that we look at our current DTD v2.0
for what is needed as a base.

We have some things like an "imagemap" demo
contributed to our seed-sample site.
So we would we need:
20. XHTML Image Map Attributes Module

I agree with these below, but will look again to
see if we missed any.

It does not have sufficient structure for our full
layout using just the standard attributes, so
we would use those and define some additional ones.
It seems ideal.

I presume that this is the "<div role=" hooks of our
"views" structurer.

I have not yet grasped the power of the RDF definitions.

The first version of the sample document can define
our decided list of modules.
