| But general parsed entities... yecch. Doing content aggregation at
| the lexical level feels wrong.
I agree completely, both in general and with the points you made.
Since the rules for what is allowed in referenced external entities
are different from the rules for the document entity they work very
poorly as a document management tool.
Another thing is that in a real application you usually want to
control where in the document inclusions are allowed, which means that
entities can't be used. (And yet you can't stop them from being used.)
