How do DTDs work better than W3C XML Schema as the basis of creating a type system for a query language over XML documents?

	More of a decree than guidance, and a complicating factor in some people's
	opinion (e.g. is a language really following the 'use schemas' command if
	they must include a DTD subset to fully handle all aspects of their
	language? (see character entities) If a DTD subset is required, why must
	they use schemas at all when DTDs work arguably better?).
