It is a specification which originates in the intellectual property of ISO 8879, and prior to that, in efforts of individual groups to solve problems with interoperable publishing formats. That is why XML is referred to as a subset and not an application of SGML. You'll also find that some SGML systems documented their required tags in instance format, not DTDs, so even the schemas have prior art.
