Yes, that's okay. I don't think this redundancy is necessary.

I think, that this could work fine. You'd need to specify <key> and
<data> as required elements inside a <value>, that must occur exactly
<!ELEMENT value (key, data)>
Empty data should be allowed, imo. This would be a correct DTD, and
thus every xml parser should be able to read it. I don't know, if
specifying it that way was faster than using attributes, though. Files
will be larger, though.
