Perhaps version could be an attribute.  Attribute "lang" missing.
Add an attribute "date"?

If authors? in application were replaced by author*, element authors could

Should read  exported (yes | no) #REQUIRED.  Attribute for arity?

Since there is no mixed content, perhaps (#PCDATA) could be replaced by
CDATA throughout the DTD.

After repair of attribute "exported" and removal of duplicate element
