Actually, a valid xml document doesn't need a doctype declaration at
all. I never use them in my documents.

If you're thinking about moving to xml (which seems like a really good
idea), I suggest you look beyond the DTD-based options, which have a
lot of baggage (like doctype declarations). The next version of
DocBook is authored with RELAX NG, and is namespaced.
