Good approach.  Question: is it a valid subset?  Will any instance that 
parses by this definition parse with the original?

How should an XML DTD designer signify that this DTD is a 
conformant subset or a variant of a another DTD?  Are 
these one, two, or three namespaces IF a namespace identifier 
resolves to a schema?  This matters if the FPI is ROA for the 
DTD and a label for the namespace identifier.
