I think the most concrete DTD in use is that within the GIFT distro. However, 
it blithely ignores things like get-configuration and get-server-properties, 
as they are "stubs" added to the DTD for the case where someone wants to do 
something more complicated.

Even better, still, he is on the list, and he is easily reachable, as he is 
head of the Viper group in Geneva.

./dtd/mrml.dtd within the GIFT package.

There is a long version to this question, the short one is:
1. what's the focus of your project?
2. Will you look into XML-RPC and SOAP as possible containers of MRML(-like)

I dunno. 60-odd.

Oh, this would be fast. Including property sheets?
