=Option 1:  No DTD, only normative Schema=

This makes the most sense to me.  Schema is not exceptionally more difficult to read than
DTD, and tools support for it is widespread now.  DTD is not easily digestable by XML toolsets
for metadata transformations.  This is especially important in MDA applications.

=Option 2:  Normative XML Schema, non-normative DTD=

If we go this route, I believe that the DTD should be generated from the Schema.  This is
unfortunately difficult because Schema contains a couple of constructions that cannot be translated.
 Manual synchronization of the DTD to Schema is going to be prone to error, if it occurs at

=Option 3:  DTD only=

I think this has already been eliminated.
