Being in the spec seldom helps anyone. Being in an implementation
is, as you say, the useful bit :-)

Its unfortunate but true, that quite often things need to be in
the spec to get implementors to look at them.

Well, thank you everyone for your answers. I do agree that such a thing does not belong to the specs. Now the question is :
how to make the implementation of XSLT command-line programs to implement such an option. A petition, perhaps ? :-)

To every implementors that read this message :
Could you please implement in your command-line processor an option to specify the path to the DTD ? Thanks in advance...
