[XML-SIG] XBEL DTD as a meta-dtd

I'd highly reocmmend using a different DTD for generic URL extraction.
XBEL is for _bookmark_ representation. The nice thing about XML is the
ability to use multiple DTDs as necessary. XML is also supposed to
convey structured information; the more generic it becomes, the less
useful XML becomes.

While on this point, somebody should establish the XBEL DTD somewhere
(XML SIG page?) so that people can refer to it with a namespace
declaration, then augment their tags with the namespace. For example:
<xbel:info ...>
