I think they almost always just delay for 30s before serving
the DTD. If you *really* need it, you'll eventually get it.
But that shouldn't matter as that's what SGML/XML catalogues
are for, and libxml2 has transparent support for them. For
example, on a typical Debian system, if you have the
w3c-sgml-lib package installed, it won't go near the W3C
servers if you fetch the DTD.
But I'm not proposing to make fetching the DTD the default:
rather I'm proposing to add an parser option so users can
choose to have that behaviour if they need it. And I would
add a corresponding --loaddtd option to rapper to enable it.
