Hmmm... There's a command-line option (--novalid) not to load the
DTD, but I think this would be wrong if there are some character
entities (not the numerical ones). How about a command-line option
to say that "there would be no problem"?

But I think that any internal subset could be seen as a private DTD.
So, the DTD structures could be shared, and once an internal subset
is found, then the structures corresponding to external subsets could
be cloned[*] (even if this isn't needed a posteriori).

[*] or just modified, in which case, the URL reference to the modified
structures would be invalidated. Something like that...

I don't know about XInclude. I don't use it. In my case, there would
be no problem.
