I think the issue has to do with entity resoltion.  What if there was
an entity defined in the DTD that is used in the document?  If the DTD
is not parsed, how should that entity be displayed? text?

Personally when I say validation=false I want the parser to ignore that
damn line tho.

Their is a bug in the Xerces parser. Even though validation is set to false
it still tries to download the external DTD specified in the DOCTYPE. Their
are even comments in the code asking if they should do that! Xerces v1.1.2
works fine but v1.2.0 and above do not.
