They can be validated if you copy the catalog DTD to
a local file and change your SYSTEM references in
your catalog files to point to that local file.

The problem is that the catalog cannot resolve the location
of its own DTD if it can't load the catalog, and it couldn't
load the catalog because it failed to find the DTD over
the disconnected network.  

IMHO, the catalog resolver should not give up if it can't
find the catalog DOCTYPE, but should load the catalog file
as a well-formed document instead.
