I took it to apply to both.  It would be peculiar to embed the
statement in a paragraph about system identifiers if it didn't apply
to them.

I assume by "those examples" you mean "a special XML element type
defined by a particular DTD, or a processing instruction defined by a
particular application specification".

A processing instruction could be in or before the DTD, and could
certainly affect the interpretation of declarations.

The element could be something like the BASE element in HTML.  I'm not
sure whether it is defined whether BASE affects entity declarations
(it would only arise in XHTML).
