The DOCTYPE declaration must be part of the document entity and cannot
therefore be repeated in any external declaration sets (what I assume you
mean by "doctype files".

Tools that require DOCTYPE declarations in external subsets are simply
treating the subset as a complete document.  You can get around this by
creating a shell file that has the doctype declaration and uses the real
declarations as an external subset (this is a convenient trick for
ADEPT*Editor, for example):

<!-- Shell file to support tools that need a DOCTYPE declaration. -->
<!-- End of shell file. -->
