Why does the DTD need to be stored relative to the XML file rather than (say) with its correct
absolute path, then use the XML parser's preferred solution to tell it where the local DTD
cache is?

This is just an idle thought - I've no idea how or even whether it would work in Tomcat, as
I don't know how you'd set up the cache location.  But most XML parsers have one *somewhere*.
