You can't transport them in a way that an XML processor would recognize them
as being in that range and part of a parsed entity.
You could use processing instructions; something like <?char x0007?> and
rely on the application to recover the characters.
Also, you could define appropriate unparsed entities and then refer to them
by attribute <char val="x0007"/> (having previously defined x0007 to be an
unparsed entity and val to be an entity attribute).
