Tsk.  Tsk.  Tsk.  Way too prickly, Arjun.  From my reading, what he was 
calling non-XML was not DTD syntax but the "xlink: show=new actuate=onLoad" 
that gets stuffed into the notation pub ID, as a replacement from the XML 
attribute syntax used in XLink.  In fact this is crystal clear from his 
message, I think.

So take a deep breath now...
