I personally do not care NOTATION, ENTITY, NMTOKEN, or NMTOKENS.  Even if 
we allow NOTATION and ENTITY as values of a:attributeType, we still need 
entity and notation declarations in DTDs.  Thus, we cannot completely 
migrate from DTDs to RELAX NG, but have to use DTD, RELAX NG, and annotations

We do not normalize " 1   3 " (<list><data type="short"/><data type="short"/></list>) 
as "1 3".  Thus, I do not care NMTOKEN or NMTOKENS.

But I can go either way.
