Oh dear.    That's terrible.  And super hard to fix because it is in TR 
space.  For what its worth, current versions of XHTML DTDs are all in 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/DTD

I will talk to w3c pubs about how we can get this straightened out.  We 
plan on updating the second edition draft to a Proposed Edited 
Recommendation in the next few weeks, which would of course solve this.  
But sooner would be better.

I will keep you posted.
