YES for the DOCTYPE. One of the things I think will emerge is
a standard way for software to stare at a website full of XML documents and
pull out only those XML documents of type "International Invoice Format"
or "Universal Newswire Format" or whatever. Given that the root element
can be any sub-tree of the DTD where else could this info go?
