      There are other problems with DTD, but I feel a lot of people are
      considering XML Schema/RELAX NG/Schematron as something alternative to
      DTD. So it would be nice if we can treat DTD as if it's the same as XML
      Schema/RELAX NG/Schematron.

      And even if we forget about DTD, we still need to "rewind" the stream
      because JARV doesn't support SAX-based schema parsing right now.

      So here is my plan:

      1. JARV accepts many different inputs: InputStream, File, String (as
         url),etc. But all of them are eventually converted to InputStream or

      2. Use BufferedInputStream/BufferedReader to wrap the original

      3. Then mark it before read any byte/char

      4. Try to parse it as an XML with non-validating parser.

      5. if it receives the startElement event, it must be an XML-based
         grammar. Use the tag name to figure out the language, reset the
         stream, hand it to the appropriate JARV implementation

      6. if it fails to parse XML document, reset the stream and hand it to
         the DTD implementation.

      Do you think it works?
