 only to some extend, the validation mechanism are quite different.

Is there some limitation that
prevents this?

  yes and no. binary compatibility makes fixing DTD validation APIs
extermely hard, on the other hand the line number should be present
from the tree and this should be made available.

Or is it intentional that output for --dtdvalid should
lack this info?
