Based on my (certainly imperfect) understanding of the situation, it
would seem to me that QUANTITY NONE would not cause any trouble to users
of custom DTDs, while applying whatever semi-random limit may. 

Do you recall whether this has ever been discussed in w-v? There are a

haven't been scared off it by the swarm of HELP! messages.
