The way I see it, what the system id is does not matter wrt. validity.  This is
how it currently is in the validator; validator does not "reject" documents
that use the old system id, it just issues a warning about it.  I think this is
just fine, and I'm inclined to leave things as they are and close this bug.  I
don't see anything in the MathML specification that would actually *mandate*
using any particular system id - it's a "should" in a section that is not
marked as normative unless I missed something.

However, the warning emitted by validator points to a document that has the old
location for the MathML DTD: http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list.html
I'll try to find someone who can update it.
