And here I thought it was bad enough that Document Type Definitions and 
Document Type Declarations were so similar in name if not in content.  Eek. 

I'd rather not use DSD - I think we'd do well to avoid calling these 'Document 
Definitions', because they may well be used in situations that aren't 
traditionally in the realm of 'documents.'  Hmm...

Sex, drugs, rock n' roll, and now the standalone declaration.  Maybe Structure 
Definition Instance?  SDI - like Reagan's old Star Wars bit.  That sort of 
loses the meta-status of the SDD, though.  Structure Definition Schema (SDS)?  
It brings schema back in... I can probably live with that here. Can other 

I'll keep using SDD until we find something better.
