Horrible idea, when I use "custom DTDs" it is because I need
them.  They just happen to be not in your database, e.g., the
xml2rfc DTD is a (slowly) moving target, CharmapML is rather
obscure, xhtml1-i18n is experimental, and two versions of XML
DTDs (inline, standalone) for IANA language subtag registries
in essence use the validator to check cross references based
on ID and IDRREF.
