Indeed. This discussion has been surprisingly interesting and
educational for me. The stuff that Dan is providing really opens
my eyes.

Now, just what are the practical reasons (if any) for me to keep the 
DTD gobbledygook at the top of my XHTML docs right now? A lack of 
validators?

(And no, I'm not going to use relative uri-s for any namespaces.)
