Unless you are using p:load with @dtd-validate=true, the XProc processor (or rather, the XML parser) does not DTD validate. However, if a DOCTYPE declaration is present, it has to scan the DTD in order to discover entity declarations.

If the DTDs don't declare any entities that the documents depend on, perhaps you could use an XML catalog and "redirect" all public/system identifiers to a dummy DTD.
