Sure, why not?

Now, should this be another class tied to Template::Declare or something
separate? I thought about XML::Declare, but that sounds like you're building
XML, which this isn't doing. Not a bad name overall, but I don't know if
it's right. How about XML::TagSet as the top-level package and then
XML::TagSet::Declare being the Object::Declare with the schema() sub:

use XML::TagSet::Declare;
use XML::TagSet schema {
   # blah blah

This becomes a supplement to Template::Declare, but as you mentioned, could
also be a tool for generating a DTD spec or XML schema as additional parts
that could be usable independently of Template::Declare. I dunno though. I
think I'm going to give it a shot though, I have some time tonight to play
