Some clarification in terminology would help here :-).  There is:
	- an external DTD subset (in a file foo.dtd or xschema.dtd)
	- an internal DTD subset (within [...] in the DOCTYPE)
	- an external XSchema (in a file *.xsc)
	- an internal XSchema [subset] within <XSC:*> elements

There are several concerns.
	- should we allow DTD subsets and XSchemas to be mixed in a document
instance (whether delivered externally or internally)
	- should we allow internal XSchemas (if so, should we use RDF notation)
	- should we allow external XSchemas (I assume yes). If so, should they use
	- should we allow internal and external XSchemas to be mixed.

If we can agree on internalXSchema and externalXSchema then the questions
are clearer.
