Well, I don't have access to the SGML standard so I cannot check on  
this, but using a DOCTYPE declaration without reference to a Formal  
identifier/DTD is pretty useless and I think a standard like this  
should have a formal identifier.

No, you can refer to a schema instead, but if you use one it should  
conform to the SGML standard.
