To clarify: it was my impression that one of the reasons for the DTD
complexity (heavy use of parameter entities) was the necessity of dealing
with namespaces and prefixes which DTDs weren't designed to deal with. The
XML type schemata were designed in a namespace aware fashion and hence
should be simpler with respect to this issue. An RDF DTD being very
dependent on namespaces inherits all of the problems of DTDs dealing with
namespaces yet the XML schemata need not necessarily have this issue.
