I'm 99% confident that anything conforming to this DTD would also conform
to the DocBook DTD - I certainly didn't add anything new, just ripped out
the bits that seemed useful. I'm less confident that a DocBook bibliography
would validate against my DTD - there may well be some features missing.

Good commenting ;-)

Too many acronyms for my taste (and limited experience with namespaces),
I'm afraid.
