The typical use case for system entries is to map a well-known but remote URI,
such as a DTD hosted at www.w3.org, to some local URI providing the same
content.  If your catalog delegates public ids to my catalog, you don't want
to pick up my random system entries if there happens to be a match.

Most languages are dramatically underdescribed, and at least one is 
dramatically overdescribed.  Still other languages are simultaneously 
overdescribed and underdescribed.  Welsh pertains to the third category.
