Proposal Announcement - XML DTDs to XML docs

I'd like to announce the posting of an unofficial and incomplete proposal for 
the representation of XML DTDs as XML documents at: 

While it lacks _any_ official standing, I hope folks will take a look at it 
and consider its possibilities.  It has some overlap (and I think eventual 
compatibility) with XML-Data, but it aims at a much smaller target.  This 
proposal is more interested in making XML a friendlier and more 
self-consistent environment than in creating complex schemas for XML content.

All comments, positive and negative, are welcome.  Unlike my other essays, 
this one is explicitly _not_ copyrighted; I'd really like to see these ideas 
flower, even as part of someone else's proposal (as is probably necessary).  
If anyone is interested in contributing, I'd like very much to expand this.
