Anyone who expects to process an SGML document without a DOCTYPE is of
course barking, but I guess you might argue that an XML document without
one is within the bounds of possibility. But why would the judge in her
chambers expect any XML document necessarily to behave the same way in
the presence of a DOCTYPE or without one? This isn't a problem unique to
