This, in my opinion, is a bug in the DTD that has been "fixed" several
times.  We can fix it harder ;-), but we need to get affirmation of it
from the working group. I am forwarding this message into the database
in order to re-open the trouble ticket.

The working group resolved two things with regard to this: 1) we really
wanted the noframes element to be the last thing in the content model,
and 2) the legacy module is not intended to reproduce _exactly_ the
semantics and syntax of earlier versions.
