  Hum, might be libxml2 fault. The XInclude process generate DTD related
informations for the resulting document since the book.xml included has
itself a DTD, it is empty since book doesn't define any entity, and inherit
its name from the root element name for "coherency".
  I don't think there is any normative text about saving back an Infoset to
an XML entity though :-)
