I think you are saying that resolving 1) an external entity containing a
systemID and 2) a URI in general should go through the same resolver: a
SAX EntityResolver. To do otherwise, would cause confusion. Is this

By resolve, I mean mapping either 1) an external entity to a SAX
InputSource or 2) mapping some kind of URI in general to a SAX
InputSource. The URIs in #2 may come from sources other than those
mentioned in the XML REC itself, such as in XInclude or XML Schema
