Yes and no.  The dtd in the output XML is set to 
<!DOCTYPE texinfo PUBLIC "-//GNU//DTD TexinfoML V4.12//EN" 
so it is not totally ignored.  If the dtd changes, the test results 
should be updated.

Also, although this is not run in any test automatically, I run xmllint
sometimes to check the validity of the files produced.  For that, of
course, the DOCTYPE in the outputs and in the dtd file should
correspond.  I use those lines to run xmlindent (they are at the
beginning of tp/TODO):

export XML_CATALOG_FILES=~/src/texinfo/tp/maintain/catalog.xml
xmllint --nonet --noout --valid commands.xml

It is for this manually run check that I need tp/maintain/catalog.xml.in
to have the correct value.  So having the version more centrally defined
and substituted in maintain/catalog.xml.in, as well as in texi2any.pl to
have it correct for Texinfo/Convert/XML.pm (it is currently hardcoded)
would certainly be a plus.

What do you propose?  Use a substitution in configure.ac?  Weirdly
(but certainly correctly) there is nothing in util/texinfo.dtd that 
tells the DOCTYPE that is defined.  So the only places where the version 
number should be changed right now is tp/maintain/catalog.xml and in 

In any case, the dtd is so different from the 4.12 that a new
version would certainly be correct.
