I see what you mean by extending dtd.

I am not sure I would describe it that way.  SVG is limited in
fundamental ways and foreignObject allows to escape that limitation.  I
have used that in html with embeded svg to get into html again.  It is
not perfect but better than not having that ability at all.  VML was
much better in that regard.
