Good! ;-)

I fully understand that - no problem.

Paul and myself invested some time into the package and we are ready for upload.
You don't need to worry about that any more.

I totally believe you that mdb2_schema has a dependency to xml_dtd.
I never questioned that.
But from having a look at the way mdb2_schema is used within ownCloud and the total lack of 
xml_dtd with the ownCloud sources I had the feeling it's not used.
By now we know that this piece of code is not used and we can ship it within ownCloud.
