The remedy is probably (in XML 2.0) to have xml:char and xml:charref
attributes, for defining entities and referring to files of
entity definitions.

The value of xml:char could be something like
"name hex name hex ..." where hex is a 1-5 digit Unicode
code point.  xml:charref would be a URI, obviously.
