With a command like the following, James Clarke's spam will output the input
with all the declarations in its internal subset. I have a dtdnorm.bat file
that sends that to a perl script that outputs the declarations into their
own DTD file. Being an SGML tool, the xml.dcl declaration is necessary and
duplicate declarations aren't allowed.

Maybe I misunderstand what you're looking for, but the more I look at XSLT,
the more I think it will be great for this.

I'm sure plenty of vendors will get in touch with you to tell your "Our
X-Whatever product sort of kind of does everything you listed, and more!
Well, the next release will!"
