Since "-//OASIS//DTD DITA Reference//EN" is not in the validator's  
catalog at the moment, and the system identifier reference.dtd can  
not be retrieved, the validator can't find the grammar, and has to  
abort validation.

I think using the following doctype declaration should work better:
<!DOCTYPE reference PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DITA Reference//EN"
