XML Conformance and DTD support in SAX

1. XML Conformance

I am not sure if I am going off in a tangent but I think some form of markup
to indicate XML conformance would be really nice so that XML clients and
servers can decide whether to validate or not.

<?xml:conformance what="valid" when="02/03/98:24:12:00"

2. It would be nice to have SAX provide more DTD information.

We could either have a separate DocumentTypeHandler or fire XML parsing
events for DTD as if it was an XML document being parsed.  Anyway, without
better support for DTD, DOM can be supported fully by SAX.  Perhaps we need
SAXDTD API to augment SAX?

No lines drawn, just digging some sand with my toes,
