I think this will be even more valuable if plans for network FPI 
resolution go ahead (see http://www.entmp.org/fpi-urn/). In the case of the 
expired HTML 3.0 public text, people could still refer to "-//W3C//DTD 
HTML 3.0 Draft//EN" or some such thing that the FPI resolution scheme 
could resolve to a DTD available online at W3C.
