Why? What use would they serve?

If someone makes one, the RNG is authoritative over it.  That was the
point of the wording.

The omission of DTD is a feature, not a bug. The omission of a W3C XML
Schema is also intentional, though if we find a way to make one that
conveys most of what the RNG says we may well add one. The RNG wuld
still be authoritative over it, however.
