Perhaps because by enforcing the use of <meta name="DC.Title" /> we are
enforcing the use of the Dublin Core standard whereas authors may wish to
use other metadata schemes?

Also how do you make mandatory the use of the attribute and value
'name="DC.Title"' for the meta element in the DTD?

Frank Reinthaler.

I agree, the title is integral to the document, but why not make <meta 
name="DC.Title" /> mandatory instead?
