Sorry, I really should have read your letter better.

Since xmllint doesn't complain about xi:include elements("got (service_bundle 
service service ...)"), the XInclusions are done properly. There's two 
problems, AFAICT:

1) The DTD isn't namespace aware(it doesn't allow the xmlns attribute):  

No declaration for attribute xmlns:xi of element service_bundle

The solution to this, if not adding to the DTD the xmlns attribute to 
service_bundle, is to place the xmlns attribute inside /each/ include 
element, like this:

<xi:include xmlns:xi=""; href="..." />

(since all is then substituted)

2) The second issue, which is puculiar to me, is this:
Element service_bundle content does not follow the DTD, expecting 
(service_bundle* | service* | xi:include*)

If I read this correctly, the DTD apparently says that an "xi:include" element 
may be in the document. To me, that's schema design which can be improved, 
perhaps the author didn't know about --postvalid.
