Has the idea of an optional DTD digest been completely abandoned,
i.e. an optional set of useful information from the DTD, such as
content type for non-element-only content tags and attribute default
(type)?  To retain SGML compliance this could be in the form of PIs,
e.g.

<?XML EmptyElements PageBoundary Gap>
<?XML MixedContent P Quote S>
<?XML AttrDefault EnumTypeAttr1 value3>
<?XML AttrDefault Pointer CONREF>
