FWIW, this problem also occurs with the ePub stylesheets.  Because  
epub/docbook.xsl imports xhtml-1_1/docbook.xsl, which contains this  

    <xsl:output method="xml" encoding="UTF-8" indent="no" doctype- 
public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" doctype-system="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd 

this XHTML was generated:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"

which caused the online version of epubcheck at http://www.threepress.org/document/epub-validate/ 
  to complain:

    WARNING: wrg-resume.epub/wrg-resume.xhtml Unresolved external XML  
entity 'http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml11.dtd'

In my case, I removed the offending lines thus:

    cat wrg-resume.xhtml | sed '2,3d' > wrg-resume.xhtml
