If you expect to ever validate them, it does.

I don't want the DTD to edit manually. I was going to write a tool (in
Python) to create menu files. The XML system I use requires a DTD to
"compile" into objects, and validates the results. 

If it doesn't have a DTD, or a XML Schema, then it's not XML. 

I can create a DTD from the description in the comments.
