Well, let me be clear that these FPI's are *only* for the DTDs for our
"rpm-info.xml" and "doc-entities.xml" documents. DTDs for DocBook XML
should still come from one of the canonical locations at oasis-open.org
or docbook.org. (I usually use docbook.org, but that's just me.)
If you're on a system with the "docbook-dtds" package installed, your
system resolves entities through your local SGML catalog (in /etc/sgml)
before trying to hit the network, anyway.
