This may not fit with the rest of your suite of tools, but for the record,
OmniMark will allow what you describe. A common complaint in the past was the
fact that invocation of the application and recognition of the DTD often took
longer than processing the data - this has been addressed by allowing any number
of DTDs to be read in, then any number of instances to be processed by a
continually running application.
