<x:x  xmlns:x="some namespace"
    xml:charref="some file of entity definitions  
    some other file of entity definitions  
    some further file of entity definitions  ">

rather than

 <!DOCTYPE ... [
   <!ATTLIST x:x: xmlns:x="some namespace" >
   <!ENTITY % ent1 SYSTEM "some file of entity definitions">  %ent1;
   <!ENTITY % ent2 SYSTEM "some other file of entity definitions">   %ent2;
   <!ENTITY % ent3 SYSTEM "some further file of entity definitions">   %ent3;


Would the xml:charref be scoped?   Would editors of the text have to propogate
the references during cut-and-paste?
