Dave Love wrote something earlier about including PSGML in the Emacs distribution. I don't know the status of this. But it could either be as a replacement of the current sgml-mode or in addition to it.

Replacement. I've been advocating this ever since psgml reached stable
*years* ago. sgml-mode alone is useless and vastly confusing for the
beginner, as it precisely does *NOT* implement SGML editing, only the
recognition of pointy brackets -- useful 15 years ago but not now!

In the first case no renaming is needed or desirable. In the second case I think a renaming will be necessary.

Unless we want to eliminate the current SGML mode,

Yes. Kill it immediately and replace with psgml-mode. Make sgml-mode an
alias for psgml-mode.

Please. In perpetuating sgml-mode we are making the Emacs distro look
very silly.
