council firmly said "No", as I recall.
So I don't think we need formally discuss it more, it was already stated.
I think Lou should cut down chapter ST a lot, and let it reference the
customization chapter. That's
the one which needs bringing to the fore, and explaining how to use the
TEI in anger (that's constructive

I am slightly surprised by that. Can you give me a sample ODD which
generates Relax properly, but not DTD?
Such things need sorting out.
You may find the next release better, as a lot of the class changes
affected this situation.
