Note that things like XInlcude can reconstruct the uses of parameter
entities (and general entities in data).  This would have to be a step
performed afer namespace processing but before schema validation.

XML Schemas a llow an <appinfo> element. I have been suggesting that one use
of this can be a private declaration element for public entity sets.  The
presence of unknown entities should cause schema-invalidity  anyway.
