I've looked at convertv2v3. The reference exists in the original v2 doc and is just preserved. That is, this is the entry in the v2 doc:

<!DOCTYPE rfc SYSTEM "rfc2629.dtd" [

All of the ENTITY references are pulled out and changed to x:includes. Then the remaining DOCTYPE was then just left alone, with no special checks as to what DTD was being referenced.

I guess I can add some code to check for this special case and remove the DTD entirely if it's an rfc2629.dtd reference.
