On the other hand, it should evolve down to a 
semi-stable set of stable DTDs or schemas that 
can be replicated.  Relying on an always connected 
system is dicey.  That is a recurring pattern of 
network design:  what to localize/replicate and 
what to centralize/connect to.  

Where do catalogs thrive?  It seems to be a best 
practice question worth thinking about.

The focus should probably be on getting application developers to use
catalogs, so that users don't have to know about them and see no
difference when online or offline.

Agreed. Really annoying to be editing a doc on a plane, and it times out
for a couple of minutes and then says the xhtml dtd is not available :)
