I would argue they do get actively in the way.
Sure, the EDI stuff probably does not need external parsed entities
and who knows what else. But if EDI software is going to
truthfully "use XML" and "be fully XML compliant" then it
cannot just barf when these things appear in XML docs.
And as Simon St. Laurent said just recently, there is no formal
way to declare what XML features your software handles and
what bits it doesn't handle.
