Minor gsdoc DTD problem

while writing some XSL transformation for gsdoc documents I noted a
minor problem concerning the gsdoc 1.0.0 DTD. Definition lists are
defined as
 <!ELEMENT deflist (term, desc)+>
While processing such a node hierarchy from a program based on SAX or
DOM APIs is no problem it at least seems "unclean" to me. I would rather
perfer a DTD declaration along the lines of
 <!ELEMENT deflist (dlitem)+>
 <!ELEMENT dlitem (term, desc)>
because it more closely mirrors the logical structure of a document
("cleanliness" ;-) ) and would make it much easier to define
translations using tools like XSL.

Any comments?
