By my reading of the spec, if the entity is internal, parsed and general,
yes. The replacement text must be well-formed. Such attribute values can
still break the well-formedness of the document if the replacement text
contains, for example, a quote that could be confused for the closing quote
around the attribute value.
XML Rec sections 4.3.2, 4.4 (the table is helpful) and 4.4.5 are relevant.
