No because if DTDs were really controversial, we wouldn't 
be having such a hard time adopting the children fields of 
VRML97 to DTDs (why, we just put Children elements in the DTDs!!) 
and XHTML would have been designed around a schema instead 
of a DTD.  Come to think of it, schemas have DTDs too.  So 
far, no one seems to blink.

BTW:  as one of the inventors of XML, and great thinkers 
in markup theories, is it possible the VRML represents 
something that XML can't or shouldn't?  Asked seriously 
because that claim was made today during the GreatChildNode 

This one is worth understanding, XMLers, as it calls into 
question whether XML actually can be thought of as a universal 
data format.
