What if you have more than one document?
I think that DTD is reasonable only in situation when you have
more than one document. DTD is kind of grammar. I think that
having grammar for only one document is kind of hypotetic
situation... I can imagine some system which is generating
xml documents and grammar for each document, but I can't
understand what should be the purpose of such a system...
