You could do write a single DTD with the following:


and then have each company define their company-specific elements in 
company-specific DTDs, which would be included through the internal subset. 
 This is open to abuse, though, as a valid document could contain any 
elements, not just the intended, company-specific elements, in the 
COMPANY_SPECIFIC element. However, if the documents are machine generated, 
this is not a problem.  (By the way, EMPTY and ANY(THING) are valid only in 
content model definitions, not attributes.)
