No "registration" required. 

The SystemID is just a URI (think "URL"), just like you'd use in an HTML
anchor tag's href attribute. As with any other URI, the location can be
absolute (including the http://whatever.domain.com/path/ portion as well as
the specific file name, like blah.dtd in your case) or relative (omitting
any portions of the URI that are identical to the URI of the document
referring to the DTD). So if you use plain old blah.dtd, as above, you're
saying "find the file blah.dtd in the same location (= folder, directory,
whatever) as this document itself."
