Docbook/website, which is the basis for the XML pages of the NetBSD web site,
comes with a DTD so we could validate the pages if we wanted to.

On the other hand, we already have created new tags (see <portpage> and
others in htdocs/share/xsl/portpage.xsl) without providing a DTD and I
can imagine other applications for new tags (<mirrorserver>, <consultant>,
<pgpkey>, ...).

Should we simply go ahead and create (or at least propose and then
discuss) new tags as we need them for special applications?
At the moment I would like to have new tags for
htdocs/gallery/consultants.xml, which is a wild mix of XML/HTML tags and
too complicated, IMO.
