This is a minor point, but in D1 the  Infoset spec states:

"The content models of elements, from ELEMENT declarations in the DTD. "

However, according to XML 1.0 "content model" only properly applies 
to element declarations that contain only child elements. See section 
3.2.1 of the 2nd edition of XML 1.0:

[Definition: An element type has element content when elements of 
that type must contain only child elements (no character data), 
optionally separated by white space (characters matching the 
nonterminal S).][Definition: In this case, the constraint includes a 
content model, a simple grammar governing the allowed types of the 
child elements and the order in which they are allowed to appear.]

It does not apply to elements that have mixed content, ANY, or EMPTY. 
I suspect what you meant here was "content specification".
