This is not a bug.

All accesses to DTDs and Schema files on W3C servers are rate-throttled,
because we get millions (sometimes tens or even hundreds of million) of
downloads per day of these things. At times the bandwidth demand dwarfs
slashdot :-)

Please use an XML Catalog to direct requests for the schema to a local copy.

I've marked it as closed "wontfix" - if we had a "closed cantfix" I'd use that
instead; the throttling is a compromise so that we still serve the resources.

See http://www.w3.org/Help/Webmaster.html#slowdtd for slightly more
information.

If this does not answer the question, please feel free to contact me directly,
and I'll put you in touch with the systems team if appropriate.

Thanks!
