It would be nice if the documentation said something
about why a special validator is needed, instead of
just using a DTD or something similar. I'm sure there
are reasons, but I can't seem to find anyone explaining it.

As to DTD's, such an approach could not handle namespaces,
nor catch the specifics nuances of - for example - a number
of date format.
If this is sufficient, I'll close this feature request. If
you feel more explanation is needed, please attach another

There are many alternatives to DTDs. Many of them seem to
handle namespaces. Are they all too limited to catch all
Atom rules, or was it just easier to write the rules in Python?
As there already is a documentation on why a validator is
needed, the only remaining question appears to be why Python
Mark and my choice of Python was based on our experience and
preference for that language for tasks such as this one.
Other people might have chosen other approaches. However,
this is truly an implementation detail.
