You know, it doesn't inhale (I was going to say 'suck', but I know
that my American cousins are still a little sensitive after the recent
impeachment trial).  It's easy enough to parse the normalised content
model if you really need to: it would be all one string, with no
parameter entity references.

Of course, people will rightly complain that the processor has already 
done the work of parsing it.  It's hard to know what to do here.

All the best,
