  I don't affirm or deny anything w.r.t. conditionalization needs. I'm
just stating my position as the guys who implement and maintain the 
friggin' code, okay !
  I'm not convinced that one need acces to the DocType to conditionalize
*processing* . And I'm definitely convinced that it's useless to try to
add support for an unstructured processing within an XML toolkit.
  I don't want to add an add-hoc unspecified unstructured processing
to my toolkit and maintain it. Show me a more coherent request and
I will re-evaluate it. Mind you I have work to get done too !
