HTTP client/servers should be enhanced to allow version and level

may (or may not) be equivalent to:

text/sgml; dtd="-//IETF//DTD HTML Level 3//EN//3.0"


I should think it must be equivalent, and as a detail that
the name of the attribute should be FPI (Formal Public
Identifier). Of course there's the complication of those
Recommended and Deprecated sections. Dan?
