Well... I meant 2.  A validating parser is permitted to have a local 
catalog in which DOCTYPES are mapped to alternate locations, and I would 
certainly recommend that any validating parser have local versions of 
these DTDs and use them rather than beating on the W3C servers all the time.

Regardless, you are of course correct that the versions in /TR space 
should be corrected.  But this is VERY HARD TO DO at the W3C.  So, for 
the nonce, is there a way you can get the W3C validator to look in 
/MarkUp/DTD for the XHTML family Document Types that were defined by the 
XHTML2 working group?
