That is what we are trying to learn ... it was identified as an area of consideration, so a part was made for it. We are doing the due-diligence to determine if there are use-cases supporting the effort involved. While proposing straw-man solutions is a fascinating exercise, we need to determine from the use-cases if it is even worthwhile to follow through with a Part 9 for DTDs. I'd be interested to hear from others if they think DTD syntax is even needed for the features we've quoted here ... or will people just rely on Part 2 (RELAX-NG) for their grammar needs? Should we even bother with a Part 9? Why? We aren't doing this for an academic exercise ... we want to reach the constituency of document modelers out there, many of whom are still using DTD syntax. ............
