My experience using gellmu is that DTD validation makes it easier for
me as an author to catch errors than when I write LaTeX directly.  The
situation is not entirely parallel, however, because (1) the document
type is optimized for authors rather than for renderers and (2) MathML
is not (yet) being produced in one of its output streams.

Will the other parties have your DTD?  (Will it be on the web?)

I would think it to your advantage if they can perform validation
before shipping to you.
