I am very new to this.  Please forgive me if I made a mistake.

As far as I am concerned, all the identifiers (either a URL 
pointer, dumb number like a DOI, or a meaningful number like 
issn, or SICI should be surrounded by metadata in a registry 
service.  And it is the metadata that need namespaces.

I tried to declare entities in the XML document instead of DTD 
on IE5 for client-side processing. It works.  As we all know, the
IE5 for the client-side processing is a non-validating parser.  
I have not tried it on the server-side yet.  

By the way, the idea of doing so should be credited to Steven 
DeRose.   Hope this helps!

Hi Amanda,

Amanda said:

AX: Agree.  I use the entities for URL links to our image server (as a
entity, instead of using unparsed ones).  It works beautifully.  All I need
to do
is to maintain the image links in entity declaration section.  I really
think it is
redundant to use namespace for identifiers.  Anyhow, it is just my own

Didier replies:
This solution requires that you use a validating parser and that you include
a DTD in the TOC document. We are searching for a solution that can work in
a non-validating as well as in a validating environment.
