But for xhtml, there is a perfectly fine DTD, and one can
easily generate DTD's for anything with a XML schema; so this is
very rarely an issue in practice.

xslt is quite a different kettle of fish than just writing an
XML document. As I said above, as far as psml is concerned, XML
appears to be a subset of SGML (the non-subset features of XML are
not relevant to psgml).
In most cases, psgml is a better fit than nxml mode for
editing XML documents. In cases where you really don't have a DTD,
you can always fall back on nxml mode; there is no DTD to provide the
context sensitive help that psgml provides that make it a better fit.
