Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 44426] Please make catalog use default instead of an afterthough

Ted, I'm not sure what you're suggesting we do. Changing default behaviours has
the potential to break many applications. We simply cannot do that.

There are well documented ways for applications to avoid or reduce network
access, including the use of XML Catalogs, custom entity resolvers and the
grammar caching facilities supported by Xerces and also the JAXP standard. The
tools are there. People should be using them.

I believe improving the situation is a matter of education. The more folks you
block with a 503 response the more they'll realize that they need to do
something and will have to change their application for it to work again.
