People tempted by this approach may want to get a look on the
dtd-customizer specs at http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/dtd-cust/.
Note there are newer ideas in the July slides than in the specs, which
I still have to update.

The idea is to allow people to define DTD subsets (or any variant for
those wanting that) in a simple and intuitive way.  That should allow
current dtd-aware authoring tools to provide a more accurate
environement, while still allowing to use standard stylesheets.
