After entering a comment on that and a quick chat with Terje, I think
I have it.

Basically, we hack the DTD used as a default fallback:

<!ENTITY % HTML.Version "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 PROVISIONAL//EN">
<!ENTITY % version "version CDATA #FIXED '%HTML.Version;'">
<!ATTLIST HTML %i18n; %version;>

Now onsgmls will give us a version string of PROVISIONAL
that we can test for.

That's a good excuse for some further hacks to the default DTD too :-)
