Support for XHTML+SMIL?

Now that XHTML+SMIL is finally a REC, I've tried to actually use it in a new site design. But I can't get it to validate.

I'm not certain that the validator is actually supporting it, or if the error is on my part (and that of the w3 specs, which are far too sparse in complete example code that validates).

The page in question: http://www.petesguide.com/CADcruise/template3.html

I've started off the page with this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML+SMIL //EN"
                      "http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/WD/xhtmlplussmil.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
      xmlns:smil="http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20" xml:lang="en">


But this page generates errors that I've never seen before, choking on Dublin Core metatags:

<meta name="dc.contributor.photographer" content="Peter K. Sheerin" />
                                    ^
Error: parameter entity "BasicInlineTiming.attrib" not defined


What do I need to do in order to make this XHTML+SMIL document validate?
