Changing from DTDs to XSDs would mean changing the prolog of all the kcfg files. 
Hmmm.  The question is: Is it really worth the effort.  What would we gain? 

Changing the few files that Benjamin's run of xmllint showed up would 
not have been that much work, that's why I started right away...
...assuming it was the right thing to do.  But there does not seem to be 
much concern about the current situation.  After all the kcfg files do work.
