Heh, yeah, I can see how that would look.  :)

One of the main goals for the Homebrew system, seems to be to allow
multiple users to each have their own choices of packages installed
(over what's provided by the system itself).  They're also big on it
being flexible enough for a user to have multiple complete parallel
installs too.

Kind of like:

 /home/fred/mypackages/
 /home/john/mypackages/
 /home/john/experimental_packages/

(made up path names there, to illustrate the point)

Since the XHTML1 DTDs aren't system provided, putting them in
/etc/<anything> pretty much breaks the "self contained installations"
approach.  It also means that the end user would need sudo access in
order to do it, or have the dir pre-prepared with some kind of access
setup or funky permissions.

Easier to just have a flexible location for this kind of use case. :)
