This new bit of information (I am a newcomer to SGML) is very disturbing.

Is there a way to get around this limitation?
Are there any chance of XML standard being changed to allow it?
Is this perhaps a valid reason to go for something like XML-Data rather than
relying on DTD?

Suddenly developing a serious itch,
