Because you can use a PEReferences to form a PEDecl, and you
need to have processed a PEDecl before a PEReference to it can be
processed. So I can't just scroll (unidirectionally) through a whole
document just processing PEReferences, because I need to have processed
the PEDecl's for those first, and I cant just scroll through processing
PEDecl's, because they could be created using PEReferences. All I am
saying is that this is hard, not easy.
