Hmm, isn't there some place at the top of the Document defining
the DTD to write
and in so doing define the meaning of the prefixes this DTD uses?

The namespace_prefix<->URI map for the DTD would be embedded in the DTD
The per-validation normalized_prefix<->namespace mapping
is maintained by the document validator process, and only needs
to live for the validation of a single document.
If you mean the mapping that tells validator processes that
'The DTD known by "uri:FrenchLibrary" is the following ....'
then that looks like a resource management issue that can be handled
by a higher level.
