Exactly my point. It *should* be suffivcent, and users should not have
to edit SVG files so they can be viewed offline. Not only is this
inconvenient, but it also leads to a proliferation of copies of the SVG
DTD, which upsets HTTP cacheing. It is better to give the URL of the
original DTD at W3C, which can then be fetched once and re-used for SVG
files from any site.
