I looked at it a little this morning, and came to the same conclusion  
as you.
The Beta validator has a bug (or feature?) and does not filter out  
the errors in the DTD.

In any case, opensp really does not like the following construct in  
the SVG 1.1 DTD:

<!-- Post-Framework Redeclaration Placeholder .................... -->
<!ENTITY % svg-postfw-redecl.module "IGNORE" >
<![%svg-postfw-redecl.module;[
%svg-postfw-redecl.mod;]]>

I'll check with the SVG WG about it.

Thanks.
