trim dtd
Doesn't that present a problem of not having 
a language to define the schema language in? 
At the top of XML is still SGML.  There is an 
SGML Declaration which fixes the syntax.  Then 
there is an SGML DTD to fix the schema:Schema 
*vocabulary* (aka, the schema application language). 

So how does the DTD go away altogether 
without inventing a lot of new and potentially 
more destabilizing technology to replace 
it in its formal definitional role for XML?

There is "dead wood" then there is the hearth.

Some things may just need to get a trim around the edges, for example, soon
it may be time to trim DTD's out all together.  Some things that prove to be
way off track may need to get axed or completely redesigned.  A deprecation
strategy is essential otherwise the burden of carrying all the dead wood
will bury us.  Dead wood really does stifle innovation.
