How does this allow me to find out about entity references in attribute
values (including defaulted attribute values)?

It might be convenient to distinguish parameter entities and general
entities here.  The application can do this itself by maintaining the
appropriate state, but there doesn't seem any advantage in munging
together general and parameter entities.

How would general entity references in default attribute values in
attribute list declarations be handled?

Would all parameter entity references be reported or just those at the
top-level (ie between markup declarations)?

I don't think support for entities can be fully designed without also
considering DTD information.
